Nearly 25,000 people are now living in Turkey having fled the violence in Syria. But the exodus is still growing with numbers estimated to be as high as 55,000, Reuters reports.

Yesterday, Senators John McCain and Joseph Lieberman visited refugees in the Yayladagi camp on the Turkey-Syria border and called for arming the rebels in support of their fight against President Assad.
