The families are said to have broken out as Turkish troops intensified their air and ground assault against Kurdish-led Forces in the area. At least nine people were reported killed when Turkish airstrikes hit a convoy of civilians and fighters. A convoy which our International Editor Lindsey Hilsum had been travelling with earlier in the day. Both the British Prime Minister and the German Chancellor have phoned President Erdogan, urging him to halt the Turkish offensive immediately. President Trump used a tweet to renew his threat of sanctions on Turkey. A warning: there are extremely distressing images in this report.
