Syrian army move prompts thousands to flee to Turkey


In Syria, tanks have swept into the town of Jisr al-Shughour, where the government says 120 security personnel were killed earlier this week.

People in the town say tanks have been firing on civilians, and many have fled for refugee camps being set up across the nearby border with Turkey.
