Inside Kobani

In this image made from a video taken in late November, 2014, Kurdish fighters Pervin Kobani, 19, and her father, Farouk, embrace in Kobani, Syria. On the front lines of the battle for Kobani, Kurdish female fighters have been playing a major role in helping defend the Syrian town from an onslaught by the Islamic State extremist group. Pervin Kobani is one of them. Three weeks ago, Pervin bumped into her father on a street corner. She was surprised to see him holding a gun. She didn’t know that he too had decided to fight. She says he is now her comrade first and foremost but hugged him like a father anyway.(AP Photo/Jake Simkin via AP video)
