Authorities in the Turkish border town of Yayladagi have begun construction of a fourth refugee camp to house Syrians fleeing the military crackdown in their country. Earlier on Monday, heavy rain lashed the Syrian refugee camps inside Turkey, compounding the misery of the refugees.

Turkey has given sanctuary to more than five-thousand Syrians since the protest against the regime began in mid-March. Residents who fled to Turkey say thousands of young men, including soldiers and police who switched sides and joined the protest against Assad, had armed themselves and planted dynamite around the entrances to the Syrian town of Jisr al-Shughour. Assad has made some concessions, but protesters say they'll not stop until he leaves.
