Obtained from a social media web site, the amateur video purports to show one of those wounded in battles between Syrian forces and rebel fighters along the Syrian border with Turkey on Monday. The video cannot be independently verified by Reuters. A Turkish official said at least five people - including three Syrians and two Turkish officials - have been hit by stray bullets near a refugee camp in Turkey. The wounded are taken to a nearby hospital for treatment. More than 9000 refugees who fled Syria live in the camp...some of the more than 24,000 refugees in camps in Turkey. Rebel fighters battling Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's forces often cross the border from Turkey to wage their attacks. Katharine Jackson, Reuters.
