Turkish security forces killed a civilian when they returned fire on a group of people trying to cross illegally from Turkey into Syria, the Turkish military said on Tuesday, as tensions increase along the border.

The group of eight civilians had been trying to cross from Turkey's Hatay province into northwestern Syria on Monday afternoon and opened fire on the Turkish border patrol after the troops had sounded an audible warning, it said.

The troops returned fire in line with their rules of engagement, killing one of the civilians.
