Turkey-Syria unrest: 'This feels like a front line'


Turkey has returned fire on Syria for a fifth day, after a mortar landed in the border village of Akcakale.

Five people were killed in a similar incident, reportedly in the same street, last week.

Turkey has been firing daily into Syria since Wednesday's deaths, as apparently stray munitions fall on its territory.

The BBC's James Reynolds visited the area on Sunday and said that while Turkey does not want to fight a war, the border at Akcakale feels like a "front line".
