Three rockets hit Turkish town near Syrian border: sources

DIYARBAKIR, Turkey (Reuters) - Three rockets hit the southeastern Turkish town of Kilis near the Syrian border on Tuesday, security sources said, the second straight day the town has come under fire.

Kilis, which is just across the border from an Islamic State-controlled region of Syria, has been hit by repeated rocket fire in recent weeks. On Monday four people were killed when five rockets landed in the town.
