The Islamic State (IS) militants have entered the key Syria-Turkey border town of Kobane and have taken control of three districts after street-to-street fighting with Syrian Kurd fighters. Locals said about 2,000 civilians fled to the Turkish border.

IS militias had besieged Kobane for three weeks, after taking control would gain control of a long stretch of the Syrian-Turkish border.
