Islamic State: Iraq Peshmerga fighters 'cross into Kobane'
Iraqi Kurdish Peshmerga fighters have crossed the Turkish border to help defend the Syrian town of Kobane from Islamic State.
Sources inside the town told BBC Arabic the unit was heading to the frontline about 4km west of Kobane.
Turkey finally authorised the Iraqi Kurds to cross the border last week.
