BEIRUT - A large quantity of ammunition and weapons has reached the Syrian town of Kobani, Polat Can, a spokesman for Kurdish forces fighting Islamic State militants there, said on his Twitter feed on Monday.

The US Central Command said earlier US military aircraft air-dropped weapons, ammunition and medical supplies for Kurdish forces fighting Islamic State militants near the Syrian border town on Sunday night.

Shortly before announcing that ammunition and weapons had reached the town, the spokesman for Kurdish forces had posted that he would soon be releasing "good news."
