Syrian Refugees in Turkey Tops 100K

More than 100,000 refugees of Bashar Al-Assad’s bloodshed in Syria now reside in camps in the south of Turkey, according to the country’s disaster-management agency. The number announced Monday exceeds a limit past what leaders in the country previously said would prove difficult for them to take in more refugees. The 100,363 Syrians who have sought safety in Turkey are spread across more than a dozen camps along the southern border shared by the two countries. Over the weekend both nations banned air traffic from the other through its airspace.
