    Syrians in a refugee camp on the Syria-Turkey border celebrated, after a rumour circulated that President Bashar al-Assad had stepped down.

    People waved and gathered in a victory lap around the camp, before finding out the rumour was false.

    Turkey has since covered the fence seperating the two countries with blue plastic sheets to block visibility of the goings-on in the camp.
