Russia says its planes have destroyed Islamic State command posts. But according to the US defense secretary Islamic State is probably not even in the area Russia is bombing. Could Russian jets be taking out rebels in the Syrian civil war?
Syria began its descent into civil war in early 2011, when government security forces shot and killed protesters. But if President Bashar al-Assad thought a show of force would end the protests, he was wrong.
The White House has claimed that it has identified plans for another chemical weapons attack in Syria. It warned of drastic action should Assad use chemical weapons.
US President Donald Trump has decided to end a secret CIA operation to support Syrian rebels fighting the regime of Bashar al-Assad, US media reported. The decision is an acknowledgement of the situation on the ground.
Abu Khaled al-Cambodi, once a key figure in the so-called Islamic State, now wants Australia's help. He has spent the past 10 months in a maximum security prison in Turkey.
