Al-Jazeera Video: Latest update: Gunfire from Syria hits border camp in Turkey

"Syrian forces have fired across the border at protesters at a refugee camp in Turkey, wounding a Turkish translator and at least two Syrian refugees, in the first such attack since Turkey began sheltering thousands of refugees last summer, authorities said.

A government official, speaking on condition of anonymity in line with government rules, said Turkey immediately protested the incident to the Syrian charge d'affaires and asked that the fire be halted.

Turkish security forces were reinforced in the well-marked border area following the attack, state television reported.

Al Jazeera's Anita McNaught has this update from Antakya in southern Turkey."
