At least 35 people were killed in an attack by Islamic State fighters on the Syrian town of Kobane near the Turkish border three days ago, a group which monitors Syria's civil war said on Thursday.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights also said that fighting was continuing in the town, which is also known as Ayn al-Arab.

The Islamic State attack began overnight into Monday with a car bomb near the border crossing between Kobane and Turkey, the observatory said. After that fighters from the ultra-hardline group battled local Kurdish militia, it added.
