US congressman Adam Kinzinger calls for Syria no-fly zone

Republican Congressman Adam Kinzinger has called for a no-fly zone over Syria, following claims the US-led coalition faces a backlash over its bombing campaign against Islamic State.

The rebel groups, vetted by America to help fight against the militants, also told the BBC that the support they have been given is not enough.

Mr Kinzinger said a no-fly zone would "equal the playing field" for the Free Syrian Army and stop the use of barrel bombs.
