World - Kurds push Islamic State out of Kobani after battle: monitor

By Sylvia Westall and Ayla Jean Yackley BEIRUT/ISTANBUL (Reuters) - Kurdish forces took control of the Syrian town of Kobani on Monday after driving out Islamic State fighters, a monitoring group said, although Washington said the four-month battle was not yet over. Some Islamic State supporters took to Twitter to say the fight for Kobani, a focal point of the international struggle against the ultra-hardline Islamist group, was still raging. Islamist militants launched an assault on the predominantly Kurdish town last year, using heavy weapons seized in Iraq and forcing tens of thousands of locals into exile. The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the Syrian Kurdish People`s Protection Units (YPG) had retaken the town, close to the Turkish border, but were proceeding carefully in the eastern outskirts where Islamic State had planted mines before fleeing.

There are the sounds of jets flying above,` said Tevfik Kanat, a Turkish Kurd who rushed to the border with hundreds of others, including refugees from Kobani, after hearing about the advance.

World - Clashes in Ankara as Turkey remembers Dink murder

World - Erdogan urges Islamic unity against `modern Lawrences`

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Wednesday called on Muslim states to speak with one voice against terrorism and racism, positioning himself once again as a key leader of the Islamic world. Addressing a meeting of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) in Istanbul, Erdogan said Islamic states had to defeat the successors of the iconic British officer Lawrence of Arabia who were seeking to disrupt the Middle East. He said acts of terrorism `never bind the Muslims nor Islamic countries` and called on the Muslim world to engage in `self-criticism` to define a united route in order to address the challenges. `When the Muslim world remains silent and every sect stands behind their own sympathisers, others are stepping in: terrorists and modern Lawrences,` he said.

On grainy Istanbul airport security footage, she is shown entering the country like any tourist. A week later, she is in Islamic State-controlled Syria, without ever being apprehended. How was Hayat Boumeddiene, the fugitive partner of one of the Paris attackers, able to cross through Turkey into Syria so easily? Turkey may have stepped up efforts to improve security on its border with Syria, but the area remains a major thoroughfare for jihadists and their sympathisers seeking to enter the country from Europe.
