ANKARA - Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan accused Syrian President Bashar Assad of personal responsibility for killing civilians and said on Tuesday he would take unspecified steps after Syrian troops shot at refugees inside Turkey.

"He is continuing to kill 60, 70, 80, 100 every day," Erdogan said of Assad, whom he once called a friend but whose troops were now, the Turkish premier said, "mercilessly" shooting fleeing women and children in the back.
