The Assault on Kobane

The clashes around Kobane between the YPG and the Islamic State have increased in recent weeks. The IS assault is threatening to topple the autonomous Kurdish canton. Today, I speak with Isabel Hunter, a Gaziantep based freelance journalist, mainly writing for The Independent, about the situation on the Turkish-Syrian border and the on-going clashes between the two groups.

*The podcast was recorded on Wednesday 1 October, before IS is reported to have taken control over the southern and eastern entrances to Kobane city.
