SOHR: Nine Syrian refugees shot and killed by Turkish border guards
Nine Syrian refugees were shot dead by Turkish border guards as they tried to cross the border early Saturday, reports the Syrian exile group SOHR.

Ten other refugees were wounded in the shooting, and all the victims were civilians, according to the London-based exile group.

Syrian activists located at the border area describes the night's incident as "a massacre against unarmed civilians."

Photos and videos posted on social media show bodies on the ground, but have not been verified by independent sources.

Last month, Amnesty International accused Turkish security forces for having shot and killed Syrian refugees, among these including children, who "desperately tried to cross the border with the help of smugglers."

Syrian hospitals say that they daily receive wounded civilians from the border areas.
