Shelter for some of the 160,000 refugees who have crossed from Syria into Turkey in the past ten days has been built by Turkey's emergency and disaster agency, Anadolu Agency reported.
The agency, known as AFAD, set up temporary shelter in Suruc district of Sanliurfa province in Turkey's south-east to house 3,000 Kurdish refugees. Others are being sheltered in public buildings such as schools and existing camps.
Mustafa Senturk, an AFAD official in Ankara, said the refugees were receiving water, food, beds and blankets at the center. He added: "AFAD primarily registers these refugees and allocates them tents at the center."
AFAD has around 2,200 workers in the region.
The refugees are from the area surrounding Kobani, also known as Ayn al-Arab, and have fled attacks by the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant.
