Refugees 'crossing back into Syria' from Turkey

The BBC's Rami Ruhayem has said after witnessing thousands of refugees fleeing IS militants in Syria over recent days, today he saw people crossing back into the country.

It comes after new air strikes targeted Islamic State positions in Syria, hitting areas close to the border with Turkey.

The BBC reporter said some of those trying to return to their homes in Syria wanted to find relatives, while others wanted to fight militants.
