The UN Security Council has condemned a Syrian mortar attack on a Turkish border town that killed five civilians.

The statement said the attack underscored the grave impact the Syrian crisis was having on "regional peace and stability".

Turkey's parliament has authorised military action inside Syria, a move that triggered anti-war protests.
