A Feature Test Example

A new attempt to change the colours


Outside the gates of the camp near the Syria border, small crowds of people press against the main entrance. They ask guards to let them in to see family members. On top of the camp's walls, blue plastic bags are caught on rolls of barbed wire. From a small hilltop you can see the rows of white tents inside the camp.

The Turkish government doesn't let outsiders into the camp. So we approach a group of Syrian refugees sitting under a shelter.

Fatih Nour al-Sellou, 59, is a construction worker. He fled from northern Syria two-and-a-half months ago with his family.

"They were shelling next to the houses, shelling the mountains - that's what made us leave," he says. "Six or seven thousand people came here - we ran away from all the shelling. The whole mountain migrated."
