Hundreds of Syrian refugees who had fled into Turkey crossed back Monday when a border gate was reopened a few days after ISIS militants were ousted from the frontier town of Tal Abyad.More than 23,000 refugees fleeing fighting in northern Syria entered Turkey earlier this month, according to Turkish authorities cited by the U.N. But Turkey last week accused Kurdish forces in northern Syria of driving out civilians in areas it occupies, voicing concern at the displacement of Arabs and Turkmen from the area around Tal Abyad.The Coalition's fact-finding committee was formed Saturday and has already conducted a number of interviews in Turkey with the refugees from Tal Abyad, the group said.
