An aircraft of the international coalition on Wednesday carried out a new air strike against Islamic State (IS) targets around the Syrian border town of Kobane, an AFP correspondent reported.

The air strike sent a cloud of thick black smoke billowing into the air from a hill on the eastern side of Kobane, the correspondent reported from inside the Turkish border. It was the first air strike witnessed Wednesday after a flurry of strikes Tuesday.
