ANKARA - One Turkish border guard was killed and six others were wounded on Thursday in a clash at the Syrian border with armed men, a security source said.

A Turkish official described them as smugglers and a Syrian opposition activist said some of them were Free Syrian Army (FSA) rebel fighters, two of whom were killed in the clash.

Media reports said 10 people, including civilians, were wounded in the clash.

Private broadcaster NTV said the Syrians had been waiting to cross at the border gate and opened fire when they were refused entry.

Reuters could not independently verify any of the reports.
