One killed in southern Turkey in rocket fire from Syria

One person was killed and a teenager injured as four rockets hit Kilis, southern Turkey, apparently fired from neighbouring Syria, the Dogan news agency reports, with one landing near a hospital.

Rockets landed in Kilis on several days last week, with Turkey blaming Islamic State. The army shelled the extremist group's positions along the border in retaliation.

Islamic State is currently fighting Syrian rebels groups in the area.
