Fresh air strikes by the US-led coalition today, hit positions held by Islamic State jihadists in the southwest of the key Syrian border town of Kobane.

The strikes came a day after the extremists pushed into Kobane, seizing three districts in the city's east after fierce street battles with its Kurdish defenders.

Today, the fighting had spread to new areas in the south and west.

Kobane, also known as Ain al-Arab, has become a strategic battleground between the IS group and its opponents, who include the United States and its Western and Arab allies.
