An alliance of Syrian Kurdish and Arab fighters has announced it has taken a strategically important town from so-called Islamic State militants.


The Syrian Democratic Forces said it had "completely liberated" Tabqa and the adjacent dam after weeks of fierce fighting.

The development comes a day after the US said it was going to arm members of the Kurdish Popular Protection Units, which are fighting for the SDF.
