Fear and few answers as Turkish police round up Syrian refugees

“Aid organizations and rights group Amnesty International say Turkish authorities are rounding up scores, maybe hundreds, of Syrian migrants off the streets, sometimes targeting beggars, and sending them to detention centers. The process has resulted in the deportation of some back to Syria against their will, they say. In a report this month, Amnesty said it had interviewed 50 refugee families who had been detained. It said more than 100 had been deported. Turkey denies it is forcing any refugees back to Syria and says it is only rounding up Syrians affiliated with crime.”
