US warns Syria over border movement

The US is "very concerned" by reports that Syria is moving troops near the border with Turkey, saying the move could lead to a possible escalation of conflict.

Syrian authorities are reported to have entered the border village of Khirbet al-Jouz, forcing residents to flee.

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said that if true, it was another example of "the lengths to which President Assad's regime will go to repress the people of Syria".
