Islamic State conflict: Clashes at Turkish-Syrian border

Clashes have broken out on the tense border between Turkey and Syria, where tens of thousands of Syrians have fled to escape Islamic State (IS) militants.

A number of refugees on the border were demonstrating when Turkish authorities used tear gas to break it up.

Meanwhile IS are continuing to bomb the Syrian town of Kobane.

The BBC's Paul Adams, who is on the border, says there is a sense of a "gradual squeezing" of the area by IS.
