Syrian refugees stream into Turkey

This sprawling camp in Turkey is home to Syrian refugees fleeing the bloodshed in their native land. But havens like this one are filling up - fast. Five thousand Syrians are crossing into Turkey every day. That has forced Ankara to open four more camps capable of handling up to 120,000 people. Turkey also wants to set up "safe zones" inside Syria to stem the flow - but other countries have shown little appetite for the plan because it would mean enforcing a 'no-fly-zone' to protect civilians. Ankara marked International Peace Day on Saturday - but that gave little consolation to refugees. "We are dying. Our children are dying," says this man. "What peace are they talking about?" Since fighting began 17 months ago, the U.N. believes hundreds of thousands of people have fled the country, while aid agencies say another 2.5 million face dramatically worsening living conditions inside Syria.
