US-led aircraft hammered Islamic State jihadists with 21 bombing raids near Kobane on Monday and Tuesday and there were signs the strikes had "slowed" the group's advance on the Syrian border town, the American military said.

"Indications are that airstrikes have slowed ISIL advances" around Kobane, US Central Command said in a statement, but added the situation remained fluid.
