Entire towns driven out of Syria, say refugees

Turkish officials say thousands of Syrian refugees have been fleeing into Turkey, as UN chief Ban Ki-moon warns the crisis is escalating.

More than 2,300 fled on Wednesday, by far the highest number in one day.

Earlier, the UN called for the Syrian government to "urgently" implement an agreed ceasefire.
