Islamic State conflict: US air strikes target Kobane
The Syrian town of Kobane has been struck in the latest airstrikes by the US-led coalition against Islamic State (IS).
Kurdish fighters have been defending Kobane, on the Syrian side of the border, since an IS advance sent about 140,000 civilians fleeing to Turkey.
The action was part of the coalition's campaign to destroy IS, which controls large parts of north-eastern Syria and northern Iraq.
