Women and children refugees from Syria walk near their tents on June 15, 2011 in the Turkish Red Crescent camp in Hatay's Yayladagi district, Turkey, two kilometers from the Syrian border, on June 15, 2011.

More than eight thousand refugees have flooded into Turkey from conflict riddden Syria. Meanwhile, Syrian army units are preparing another assault on a northern town to crush anti-government protests.
We speak with Borzou Daragahi of the LA Times; he was on the Turkey/Syria border and is now in Istanbul.
