BEIRUT, Oct 10 (Reuters) - The Kurdish-led force that controls northeast Syria said a Turkish air strike on Wednesday hit a prison which holds detained Islamic State militants.

"One of the prisons that ISIS detainees (are) held in was struck by Turkish airstrike," the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) said in a tweet without giving any further details. (Reporting by Alaa Siwam in Cairo and Ellen Francis in Beirut; Editing by Sandra Maler)
