A group of Syrians head towards Turkey from inside Syria as they wait for the authorization to cross the border near Turkish village of Guvecci in Hatay province, Turkey, Wednesday, June 8, 2011. Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Wednesday that his country will accept the many Syrian refugees who are fleeing violence in their country, but he urged Syria's government to adopt reforms aimed at ending the unrest. About 450 Syrian refugees, including more than 30 people who were wounded in clashes in northern Syria weekend, have already arrived in Turkey, which shares a 520-mile border with Syria.

A group of around 100 Syrian refugees crossed over into Turkey today, most of them from the northwestern town of Jisr al-Shughur where there are fears of a backlash after officials said 120 policemen had been killed there.
