ISTANBUL (Reuters) - Air strikes by Turkish and United States aircraft in Syria on Saturday killed more than 50 Islamic State militants and wounded some 30, state-run Anadolu Agency quoted security sources as saying on Sunday.

A senior government official told Reuters on Saturday that Turkish jets had launched bombing raids against Islamic State targets in Syria, as Turks prepared to vote in Sunday's parliamentary election.
