Turkish security forces have shot dead refugees escaping from the Syrian conflict, according to reports.
UK-based monitoring group the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights alleged 16 people seeking sanctuary in Turkey have been shot over the past four months.
They said those killed included three children.
Other examples compiled by the Syrian Observatory include the alleged killings of a man and his child at Ras al-Ain, at the eastern end of the Turkish-Syrian border.
In the west of the country, two refugees were reportedly shot dead at Guvveci on 5 March.
