Syria's war: Thousands flee Raqqa as SDF close in on ISIL
Thousands of people are fleeing heavy fighting in the city of Raqqa as the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) moves closer to the ISIL stronghold.
As the US-backed group of Arab and mainly Kurdish YPG fighters advance, humanitarian concerns are rising with the influx of some 20,000 refugees at nearby camps.
