Wanhopig op weg naar veilig terrein

Syriërs proberen wanhopig op veilig terrein te komen. Bij een kapot hek op de grens tussen Syrië en Turkije, in de buurt van de overgang Akcadale, worden baby's en kleine kinderen over het hek getild. Mannen en vrouwen persen zich door een gat of klimmen eroverheen.

Turkije wil maatregelen nemen om de stroom van vluchtelingen in te dammen. De afgelopen dagen zijn duizenden mensen de grens overgestoken. Tot nu toe heeft Turkije al 1,8 miljoen vluchtelingen uit Syrië opgenomen.
