BESASLAN, Turkey - Heavy machine-gun fire and the sound of mortar bombs could be heard on Friday along the Turkey-Syrian border near the Syrian town of Haram, a Reuters witness said, in another violation of a ceasefire intended to mark the Muslim holiday of Id al-Adha.

It was not clear whether the firing was from the Syrian army or from rebels fighting to overthrow President Bashar Assad.

The firing could be heard from the Turkish border village of Besaslan in southern Hatay province.
