Kurds issue call to arms as Islamic State gains in Syria

BEIRUT (Reuters) - Islamic State fighters besieged a Kurdish city in northern Syria on Thursday after seizing 21 villages in a major assault, prompting a call to arms from Kurds in neighbouring Turkey who urged followers to go and help resist the group's advance. The attack on the city of Ayn al-Arab, known as Kobani in Kurdish, came two days after the top U.S. military officer said the Syrian opposition would probably need the help of the Syrian Kurds to defeat Islamic State. #Yahoo! #content #wcntn #undefined #cookie #values #rco #aut #rch #typeof-registered #cnt

With opinion polls suggesting the referendum remains too close to call, Cameron, the leader of the ruling Conservative party, which draws most of its support from England, will plead with voters not to use the referendum as a protest vote. #Yahoo! #content #wcntn #typeof-social #undefined #aut #typeof-registered #cnt
