Fresh airstrikes by the US-led coalition on Tuesday hit positions held by Islamic State jihadists in the southwest part of Kobane, a key Syrian border town, according to an AFP journalist across the border in Turkey.

The strikes came a day after the extremists pushed into Kobane, seizing three districts in the city's eastern area after fierce street battles with Kurdish defenders.
