A Turkish boy has died and another has been seriously wounded by stray gunfire from clashes across the Syrian border.

Mahsun Ertugrul, 17, died after a stray bullet struck him in the chest in the Turkish border town of Ceylanpinar.

The bullets came from the northern Syrian town of Ras-al Ain, during a battle between Syrian anti-government rebels and Kurdish fighters.

The fighting reportedly killed at least 10 people. Recently, several Syrian clashes have spilled into Turkey.

The latest incident highlights the growing concern that Syria's civil war is dragging in neighbouring states.
