GENEVA - The UN envoy for Syria called on Friday on Turkey to allow volunteers to cross the Syrian border to prevent Islamic State fighters carrying out a massacre in Kobani, where 500-700 mostly elderly people were sheltering.

"Everybody should do whatever they can to stop this," Staffan di Mistura told a news conference in Geneva. "I hope we will not see people beheaded."
