US-led forces have carried out air strikes on Islamic State militants battling Kurdish fighters around the northern Syrian border town of Kobane..

Syrian activists said, at least 10 people were killed overnight, as the jihadists moved to within 2 to 3km of Kobane.

Tens of thousands of people have fled across the border into Turkey since IS launched an offensive two weeks ago.
 
The jihadists' advance has put pressure on the Turkish government to take a more significant role in the US-led coalition formed to combat IS.
