ANKARA — Turkey says it will build a new refugee camp for Syrian refugees that could accommodate 10,000 people, as hundreds more people fled the country.
The state-run Anadolu agency said 525 people crossed the border into Turkey late Monday, including a general and four colonels.
Turkey's government-run crisis management center said late Monday that a new camp is being set up near the town of Karkamis, in Gaziantep province which borders Syria. The camp will have a capacity to accommodate 10,000 people.
Nearly 40,000 refugees are currently being sheltered in 10 camps near Turkey's 566-mile (911-kilometer) border with Syria.
