Turkish police have fired two tear gas canisters at a vehicle carrying a BBC reporting team as it was leaving the border area near Kobane, Syria.

The second round was fired at point blank range through the rear window, filling the van with tear gas and briefly setting fire to the vehicle.

Correspondent Paul Adams was being filmed shortly before the attack, and the camera kept rolling during the next few minutes.

The team is on the Turkey-Syria border to cover Islamic State's siege of the nearby town. Nobody was injured in the incident.
