US Defence Secretary Chuck Hagel says The situation in Kobane in northern Syria remains "dangerous".

Fighting between IS militants and Kurdish defenders continues, with more than 500 people reported dead in a month of conflict.

Hagel said that US-led airstrikes had made progress against the militants, but they still occupied areas on the town's outskirts.

He said the fight against IS in Syria and Iraq would be a long-term effort.

US aircraft have bombed IS positions as Kurdish fighters cling on to the town's vital border crossing with Turkey.
