Syria force makes gains in last IS redoubtKurdish-led fighters advanced in the Islamic State group’s last bastion in eastern Syria, confining holdout jihadists to a tiny pocket on the edge of Baghouz village, the force said Tuesday. The US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces said those IS fighters who had not yet surrendered had been forced out of their main encampment and cornered into a very small area on the banks of the Euphrates River. “SDF is in control of the Daesh encampment area in Baghouz,” spokesman Mustefa Bali said on Twitter in English, using the Arabic acronym for the jihadist group.

Wall Street eyes more gains from Apple, its $  1 trillion stockAfter becoming the first $ 1 trillion publicly-listed U.S. company on Thursday, Apple last traded up 0.1 pct at $ 207.57 after falling as low as $ 205.48 and as high as $ 208.74, as it oscillated around the $ 207.0425 price that marked the record market cap.
