An attack by Islamic State fighters on the Syrian town of Kobani and a nearby village has so far killed at least 146 civilians, the second-biggest massacre by the hardline group in the country.

Islamic State entered Kobani at the Turkish border yesterday and clashes have continued with Kurdish YPG forces in the town, also known as Ayn al-Arab.

It was the biggest single massacre of civilians by Islamic State since the killing of hundreds of members of the Sunni Muslim tribe Sheitaat tribe in eastern Syria last year.
