  Beatles classic 'Abbey Road' tops charts again after 50 years Classic Beatles album "Abbey Road" is back at number one in Britain half a century after its first release, with the band breaking their own record for the longest gap between stints at the top of the charts. The band's final studio album with its instantly recognisable zebra-crossing cover came out in September 1969, six days after John Lennon told his bandmates he was leaving the group.It was the UK's best-selling album for 17 weeks, and on Friday a special 50th-anniversary edition featuring unheard material took the top spot once again."It's hard to believe that Abbey Road still holds up after all these years.

The British terror cell beheaded journalists from the UK, US and Japan, as well as aid workers and Syrian soldiers in videos released by IS to the world.

A member of the group, dubbed Jihadi John was killed in a US airstrike in 2015, with another, Aine Lesley Davis locked up in a Turkish prison.

He added that Turkish armed forces, together with the Syrian National Army, had launched what they called Operation Peace Spring against Kurdish fighters.

He added: "We will protect the territorial integrity of Syria and free the people of the region from the clutches of terror."

Kurdish forces were responsible for guarding the thousands of IS prisoners in Syria, but that is now expected to be less of priority due to the Turkish operation in the country.
