Turkey's patience may run out over the crisis in Syria and it could be forced to take action, President Tayyip Erdogan said Thursday, calling on the United Nations to do more to prevent what he said was "ethnic cleansing" in the country.Erdogan accused the United Nations of insincerity in calling on Turkey to do more to help Syrian refugees instead of taking action to prevent the bloodshed in its southern neighbor.Turkey, already home to more than 2.6 million Syrian refugees, has long pushed for the creation of a safe zone in northern Syria to protect displaced civilians without bringing them over the border into Turkey.
