Turkey boosts forces along Syria border

Influx of refugees fleeing Islamic State group in Syria prompts Ankara bid to prevent conflict spreading.

    Thousands of civilians have continued to flee the Islamic State group's rule in the Syrian province of al-Raqqa to neighbouring Turkey.

    The influx of refugees has prompted Ankara to boost its border patrol forces due to the threat of a spill over of the conflict.
