ANKARA: A Turkish official says a fire at a camp for Syrian refugees in Turkey has killed a mother and three of her children and sparked unrest among the residents.
The official says the tent at the Telhamut refugee camp, in the town of Ceylanpinar, caught light from an electric heater. The official from the Ceylanpinar mayor's office says a fourth sibling is in serious condition. He spoke on condition of anonymity in line with government rules.
It was the second deadly fire at the camp in two weeks and the official said angry residents threw stones at the camp's health clinic in protest, shattering windows.
Eleven people, most of them children, have died in tent fires at Turkish refugee camps in the past two months.
