BEIRUT (AP) - Today marks the third day of U.S.-led airstrikes against the Islamic State group in Syria.

Activists say that today's strikes killed nearly 20 people, as the U.S. and allies targeted at least four oil installations and three oil fields controlled by Islamic State.

Militants in the group's de facto capital of Raqqa (RAH'-kah) have released at least 150 people held, fearing more strikes.

Activists say other airstrikes targeted the Syria al-Qaida affiliate called Nusra Front.
