Syrian Kurds Move On IS-held Town

Kurdish fighters are reported to be moving in on the north-east Syrian town of Tal Abyad, which is held by Islamic State militants.
Thousands of civilians have fled to a nearby border crossing with Turkey, and some have managed to cross to safety.
The advance by the Kurdish Popular Protection Units has been supported by Syrian rebel groups and US-led coalition air strikes.
Tal Abyad is strategically important for both the Kurds and IS.
On Sunday evening, a YPG commander said its fighters had advanced to within 165ft of the outskirts of Tal Abyad, following three days of heavy clashes during which they seized a belt of villages previously held by IS.
