France has carried out its first air strikes against Islamic State militants in Syria.

The president's office said that French planes struck targets identified during investigation missions conducted over the past fortnight.

France co-ordinated with regional partners for the operation.

French jets have previously carried out air strikes against IS targets in neighbouring Iraq.

President Francois Hollande announced earlier this month that he was preparing to send jets to Syria.
