Gul: Syrians deserve change

The Turkish president has said his country will not remain indifferent to Syria's crisis and will support the demands of the Syrian people.

Speaking to the BBC's Bridget Kendall, Abdullah Gul said that fundamental reforms were needed in Syria.

He said Turkey no longer trusted its former ally, Syria's President Bashar al-Assad.

The UN says more than 3,500 people have died since the start of the protests against Mr Assad in March.
