The international peace envoy for Syria Lakhdar Brahimi on September 18 met Syrians staying at a Turkish refugee camp in his first encounter since taking over the mission from his frustrated predecessor. The Altinozu camp is one of the first refugee camps set up by Turkey soon after the unrest erupted in Syria mid-March 2011, which has already killed 20,000 according to UN figures and forced 250,000 to flee into neighbouring countries.
