BEIRUT - Syrian authorities, battling a rebel uprising in which 80,000 people have been killed, on Sunday advised citizens against travel to neighboring Turkey on safety grounds.

Tens of thousands of Turkish protesters have rallied for three days against Prime Minister Tayyip Ergodan's government, to the barely disguised delight of Syria's government which blames Erdogan for fueling Syria's civil war.

Syria's Foreign Ministry said it advised Syrians "against travel to Turkey for the time being for their own safety, because of the deteriorating security situation in several Turkish cities...and the violence of Erdogan's government against peaceful protesters."
