Kurdish militia fought to defend a key border town in northern Syria after 130,000 terrified residents fled to Turkey to escape an advance by the Islamic State group.

Amid calls for a US-led coalition to support the Kurds with warplanes, jihadists threatened to execute a Frenchman kidnapped on Sunday in Algeria unless France halts it air strikes.

News of his capture, which was confirmed by the French government, came yesterday after IS issued a statement urging Muslims to kill Westerners whose nations have joined the campaign.

France is the only country to have joined the US air strikes against the IS in Iraq.
