A US military air strike in north-western Syria has killed more than 100 al-Qaeda militants at a training camp, the Pentagon says.

Spokesman Capt Jeff Davis said the camp in Idlib province had been in operation since 2013.

The attack involved a B-52 bomber and an undisclosed number of drones, officials said.

The strike on Thursday was the second major US military attack in the final hours of Barack Obama’s presidency.
