The number of refugees from the conflict in Syria now tops three million, the UN said Friday, as US President Barack Obama admitted he has no strategy to tackle advancing jihadists.

The United States is supplying weaponry to Lebanon's armed forces to help it battle jihadists near the Syrian border, Washington's ambassador to Beirut said on Friday.

Nato told Russia on Friday to halt its "illegal" military actions in Ukraine after the West accused Moscow of direct involvement in the escalating conflict.

Hong Kong democracy advocates expressed alarm Friday after Chinese army vehicles were photographed travelling down a major thoroughfare, in what they condemned as a show of "military might" ahead of expected protests.
