1,500 Syrians Flee To Turkey

With the violence mounting in Aleppo, at least 1,500 Syrians fled to Turkey on Thursday. The heavy fighting has created fear that there could be a mass migration. Turkey has already set up nine camps and absorbed more than 50,000 refugees since the uprising against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad began 17 months ago. Turkish officials are reportedly worried about being overwhelmed by people fleeing the crisis.
