MSF urges Turkey to open border to Syrians fleeing fighting

International medical charity Medecins Sans Frontieres on Thursday urged Turkey to open its border to some 100,000 displaced Syrians trapped by fighting including a recent Islamic State advance.
Fighting near the Turkish border in northern Aleppo province intensified last week when IS launched an attack against rebel groups, advancing towards the town of Azaz in clashes that NGOs said sent thousands of civilians fleeing.
The United Nations says tens of thousands are already sheltering near the Turkish frontier having fled fighting earlier this year.
