Kurds fleeing Isil attacks allowed into Turkey

DIKMETAS, Turkey: Close to a thousand Syrian Kurds gathered on the border seeking to cross into Turkey on Friday after Isil fighters seized 21 villages and besieged a Kurdish city in northern Syria, a Reuters witness said.

The crowd of mostly women and children sat behind a barbed wire barrier along the border opposite the Turkish village of Dikmetas, 20 km (12 miles) from the Syrian Kurdish city of Ayn Al-Arab, known as Kobani in Kurdish.
