Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Thursday that 200 Iraqi Kurd peshmerga fighters would travel through Turkey to the flashpoint Syrian border town of Kobane under assault by the Islamic State group. The regional administration in northern Iraq and Syrian Kurdish group, the Democratic Union Party (PYD) "finally agreed according to information yesterday that 200 peshmerga would be going" to Kobane, Erdogan told reporters in the Latvian capital Riga.

The British military's 13 years in Afghanistan is recounted in a new exhibition opening in London on Thursday, weeks before its combat forces pull out with the country facing an uncertain future. Visitors to "War Story: Afghanistan 2014" at the Imperial War Museum can see a suicide bomber's vest stuffed with ball-bearings, a Taliban motorcycle and a surveillance drone as well as hear British and Afghan forces talk about their experiences.
Any future attacks on Jerusalem will be met with the "harshest response" Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Thursday after a deadly Palestinian car attack killed a baby. "Jerusalem is united and was, and always will be, the eternal capital of Israel. Any attempt to harm its residents will be met with the harshest response," he said in a statement.
Syrian Kurdish factions have signed a deal to share power and set their rivalries aside to capitalise on growing international support for their fight against Islamic State militants. The agreement was reached late on Wednesday after nine days of talks and coincided with a decision by Iraqi Kurdistan to send its own peshmerga forces to relieve fellow Kurds in the Syrian town of Kobani, under attack by Islamic State (IS).
Cyprus President Nicos Anastasiades was hospitalised in Brussels with high blood pressure Thursday and asked Greece's premier to stand in for him at an EU summit, the government said. "After prolonged nosebleeds the president... was admitted early in the morning to a hospital in Brussels where it was found that the incident is due to high blood pressure," an official statement said.
A United Nations rights watchdog on Thursday pressed Hong Kong to enact democratic reforms, saying moves so far fell short of what was needed. Amid weeks of mass pro-democracy protests and roadblocks in the semi-autonomous Chinese city, the UN Human Rights Committee said Hong Kong authorities had failed to properly heed its calls for change.
China's Communist Party leaders expelled several members at a key summit Thursday and "set a blueprint for rule of law in the world's second-largest economy", official media said. More than 360 full and reserve members of the party's Central Committee gathered at a Beijing hotel this week for the highly-anticipated meeting, known as the Fourth Plenum.
