Airstrikes hit IS in Kobane as battle for town continues

Islamic State (IS) militants are continuing their fight for Kobane but coalition airstrikes have restricted their advance.

There have been several strikes since an IS flag was raised over a building in the city on the border between Turkey and Syria.

If IS captures Kobane its forces will have control of a long stretch of the Syria-Turkey border.

Paul Adams reports from the Turkey-Syria border.
