US President Barack Obama rejected any alliance with Bashar al-Assad against the Islamic State group, arguing that the Syrian ruler was illegitimate and that any such pact would backfire.

US reports this week said the president had ordered a wholesale review of his administration's Syria policy, with Assad still in power despite an armed uprising that is now in its fourth year.

The conflict has become many-sided as militants gain ground, notably the Islamic State group and the Al-Nusra Front, which is affiliated to Al-Qaeda.

Obama has built an international coalition against IS as it rampages across both Syria and Iraq.
