Activists: Syria gunfire kills 1 in Turkey
Syrian forces on Monday fired across the border at a refugee camp in Turkey, killing one and wounding four, activists said. It is the first such attack since Ankara began allowing thousands of refugees to find shelter in the country.
A Turkish government official, speaking on condition of anonymity in line with government rules, said his country - which stands at the forefront of calls for the ouster of Syrian President Bashar Assad - immediately protested the incident and called for fire to be halted.
The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the incident began at about 4 a.m. Monday when opposition fighters attacked Syrian forces at the Salameh border crossing with Syria.
