Turkey's border gates with Syria are to be closed on Wednesday, Turkish Customs and Trade Minister Hayati Yazici was reported as saying by broadcaster NTV.
The move comes after Syrian rebels seized control of several border gates along the frontier with Turkey in their
16-month-old uprising against President Bashar al-Assad. The decision to close the gates could not immediately be confirmed. [Reuters]
