Kurdish forces say they have pushed back an IS advance

In northern Syria, Kurdish forces say they have pushed back an advance by IS militants.

IS had besieged the Syrian town of Kobane for several days, taking control of the surrounding villages and forcing more than 140,000 Syrian Kurds to flee into Turkey.

The BBC's Mark Lowen, who is in Mursitpinar on the Turkey-Syria border, says some of those Kurds are now trying to return to Kobane.
