Kobane: US warplanes bombed a bundle of supplies that went astray near the Syrian border town of Kobane after they had air dropped it for besieged Kurdish defenders, the military said Monday.

US Central Command said the bundle was targeted by warplanes to prevent it from falling into the hands of enemy Islamic State fighters.

"All other resupply bundles were successfully delivered," the command said of the air drops, the first of weapons, food and medicine since the fighting for Kobane began.

Meanwhile, US warplanes also carried out six air strikes around Kobane Sunday and Monday, hitting IS fighting and mortar positions and a truck.

And US, French and British aircraft carried out six more strikes in neighboring Iraq against IS positions near Fallujah, the Baiji oil refinery.
