KOBANE, SYRIA – SEPTEMBER 30: Kurdish children chant slogans and flash V signs in the besieged Kurdish city of Ain al-Arab (known as Kobane by the Kurds), September 30, 2014 in Kobane, Syria. Islamic State militants still held their positions around 2 kilometres west of Kobane inside Syria, witness said, with Kurdish positions the last line of defence between the fighters and the town. Kobane sits on a road linking north and northwestern Syria and Kurdish control of the town has prevented Islamic State fighters from consolidating their gains, although their advance has caused more than 150,000 Kurds to flee to Turkey since last week.
