Russian missiles strike Syria from Caspian Sea

Russia says it has launched rocket strikes on Islamic State group targets in Syria from warships in the Caspian Sea.

Russian Defence Minister Sergei Shoigu said four warships had launched 26 sea-based cruise missiles, destroying them.

But groups opposed to the Syrian government say many strikes are in areas they control.
