Iraqi Kurdish peshmerga forces crossed from Turkey into Syria's besieged Kobani on Friday to help push back Islamic State insurgents encircling the mainly Kurdish town, a peshmerga fighter in the group told Reuters by telephone.

The peshmerga forces earlier set off in more than a dozen trucks and Jeeps, escorted by armored vehicles, from a holding point around 5 miles from the border toward Kobani, which has been besieged for more than 40 days.
