Syrians seek refuge in Turkey

Thousands are fleeing to Turkey to find refuge from violence as unrest continues in Syria.

Thousands of Syrians are streaming into Turkey, escaping a deadly crackdown on pro-democracy protests.

Many of those injured in the violence are now speaking about their ordeal.

The northern town of Jisr al-Shughur has seen much violence in the last week, after a reported mutiny among security forces.

According to latest reports, Syrian helicopters opened fire on protests in the nearby town of Maarat al-Numaan on Friday.
