Kurds bury Kobane fighters in Turkey

Refugees from northern Syria mourn those who have fallen in the month-long battle against ISIL.

    A new cemetery near Turkey's border is filling up with Kurdish fighters killed in the battle for the Syrian town of Kobane.

    Despite the US-led bombing campaign against ISIL, the Kurds say they urgently need reinforcements and heavier weapons as they face a sharp death toll from the conflict.

    Al Jazeera's Bernard Smith reports from the Turkish-Syrian border.
