A military airplane flies above the Syrian town of Ain al-Arab, known as Kobane by the Kurds, during airstrikes as seen from the Turkish-Syrian border, in the southeastern village of Mursitpinar, Sanliurfa province, on October 9, 2014. Advancing Islamic State fighters seized control of a third of the Syrian border town of Kobane Thursday, as Turkey rejected sending in troops on its own against the jihadists.
