STEPHEN FRANKLIN, FOR THE PULITZER CENTER
Since the beginning of the uprising in Syria, streams of refugees have poured into Turkey. They now number well over 100,000 in camps set up by the Turks, creating a financial crunch for Turkey.
Inside the camps, the emotional and physical toll from the refugees’ exposure to the fighting and their flight is obvious. With no end in sight, the refugees ponder their fate. But the crisis has also stirred anxiety among Turks, who fret about the presence of so many Syrians in their country, and who worry that Turkey could be dragged into a war with its neighbor.
