Approximately 10,000 Syrian refugees, plagued by their country's civil war, are waiting to be let into neighboring Turkey. Officials in Turkey said they are rushing to build more camps to provide for the influx of refugees waiting on the Syrian side of the border. So far, Turkey has taken in 80,000 Syrians and hopes to expand capacity to 100,000. Authorities have seen more and more Syrians fleeing since President Bashar al-Assad revved up his bloody crackdowns on dissenters.
