The Islamic State (IS) militant group on Saturday re-entered Syria's famed ancient desert city of Palmyra from which they were driven out eight months ago, a monitor said.

"IS entered Palmyra on Saturday and now occupies its northwest. There is also fighting with the army in the city centre," said Rami Abdel Rahman of the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.
