Turkish bus companies cancel trips to Syria
ISTANBUL - Anatolia News Agency
Hürriyet photoBus trips from Turkey's southern Hatay province to Syria have been canceled due to ongoing clashes between the Syrian opposition and forces loyal to President Bashar al-Assad.
Local bus companies in Hatay made a joint statement today, saying they were canceling trips to the Syrian cities of Aleppo and Damascus because "the roads are not safe."
Company representatives also spoke of instances when their buses have been stopped and robbed by armed men on the roads in Syria.
