Syrian Kurds stand on a hill looking down on clashes between jihadists of the Islamic State (IS) and Kurdish fighters, close to the Turkish-Syrian border in Sanlinurfa province, on September 28, 2014. Turkey has so far taken in over 160,000 refugees who fled the IS assault around the town of Ain al-Arab, but Erdogan said it would be better if they could live safely in their own country.
