• Impatience grows in Turkey over Syrian ‘guests’


    ISTANBUL: Cengiz, a street seller who plies his trade selling bread rings in the center of Istanbul, is usually a fervent supporter of Turkey’s newly-elected President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. But on one issue, he begs to differ. “I support Erdogan. But I must say he made one error and that’s to allow the Syrians into our country,” he said. Erdogan has maintained an “open door” policy for all those fleeing Syria’s civil war, with the result that there are now some 1.2 million Syrian refugees living in the country.
