Turkish police fire teargas at protesting Syrian refugees

Turkish military police fired teargas at Syrian refugees protesting against living conditions in their camp on Wednesday, wounding many, residents of the camp said.
Residents of the Suleiman Shah camp in Akcakale, a Turkish town near the Syrian border, said young men started a large demonstration after a faulty electrical supply outlet set fire to a tent earlier that day.
Three brothers aged 7, 18 and 19 were injured in the tent fire, Turkish officials said. Camp residents said one of the brothers had died.
