A convoy of Islamic State fighters and their families remains in the Syrian desert after turning back from the Iraqi border, the US-led coalition said on Friday.

The coalition said in a statement that it has asked Russia to tell the Syrian government that the coalition will not allow the convoy of 17 buses to move further east to the Iraqi border.

The Syrian army and Lebanon's Hezbollah group gave safe passage to the jihadists after they surrendered their enclave on Syria's border with Lebanon. The US-led coalition says it was not a party to the deal.
