Syria calls on refugees in Turkey to return

Syria's government is calling for the return of thousands of refugees who fled to Turkey to escape violence in a northern town.


Syrian Information Minister Adnan Mahmoud says security, electricity, water and communications have now been restored in Jisr al-Shughour and the area is now safe. Some 8,000 Syrians have sought refuge in camps in neighboring Turkey following a military crackdown that authorities said was to snuff out "armed terrorists" in the region. (AP)
