A Kurdish commander said the Islamic State militant group has been driven out of most of the northern Syrian town of Kobane.

Baharin Kandal said IS fighters had retreated from all areas, except for two pockets of resistance in the east.

US-led air strikes have helped push back the militants, with another 14 conducted over the past 24 hours.

Meanwhile, the new UN human rights commissioner has called IS a "potentially genocidal" movement.

Zeid Ra'ad al Hussein described the group as the antithesis of human rights.
