"Syrian troops pushed to the Turkish border Thursday in their sweep against a 3-month-old pro-democracy movement, sending panicked refugees, including children, rushing across the frontier to safe havens in Turkey. The European Union, meanwhile, announced it was slapping new sanctions on the Syrian regime because of the 'gravity of the situation,' in which the Syrian opposition says 1,400 people have been killed in a relentless government crackdown."
