People killed in Turkish air strikes in Syria

At least 35 people are reported to have been killed and 50 injured in the latest Turkish air strikes in northern Syria.

They are the first significant casualties since Turkish tanks and troops began their offensive in Syria last week.

The aim was to drive so-called Islamic State out of a town close to the border but, as Yogita Limaye reports, Turkey also wants to stop the Kurds extending territory they control.
