World Front-line shift: Islamist militants take Syrian city of Idlib

Hardline Islamist insurgents, including the Al Qaeda-linked Nusra Front, now control a second Syrian province after Raqqa, the stronghold of the Islamic State group. But ISIS isn't allied with the Islamists who tookover Idlib. 

Islamist groups including Al Qaeda's Nusra Front - but not ISIS -  have seized the city of Idlib for the first time in Syria's civil war, fighters and a monitoring group said on Saturday.
