ANKARA (Reuters) - Turkey has formally signed a deal with the United States opening its Incirlik air base to the U.S.-led coalition against Islamic State militants, the Turkish foreign ministry said on Wednesday. The agreement only concerns the fight against Islamic State and does not include air support to Kurdish fighters in northern Syria, spokesman Tanju Bilgic told reporters in a briefing.

A high-speed Eurostar train enters the Channel tunnel in CoquellesBy Estelle Shirbon and Dominique Vidalon LONDON/PARIS (Reuters) - A migrant died trying to cross to Britain from France early on Wednesday, French police said, adding to a number of recent deaths in the Channel Tunnel as British ministers and security chiefs were to meet over the crisis in Calais. Freight and passenger traffic through the rail tunnel has been severely disrupted in recent weeks as large numbers of migrants camped out in the Calais area have tried to board lorries and trains travelling from France to Britain. The situation has turned into a blame game with Eurotunnel asking French and British governments to reimburse it for close to 10 million euros ($11 million) it spent to beef up security to cope with the migrant crisis at Calais.

The exact number, he said, is "classified." In the eyes of many Ukrainians, he and other volunteer fighters are heroes for helping the weak regular army resist pro-Russian separatists. In the view of the government, however, some of the volunteers have become a problem, even a law unto themselves.
