ANKARA (Reuters) - Turkey sees the migrant crisis deepening unless attacks by Syrian government forces are stopped, a spokesman and aide to President Tayyip Erdogan said on Friday.

Ibrahim Kalin also told a news conference that Ankara has deported as many as 3,800 people in the fight against Islamic State.
