Turkish deputy PM says more than 130.000 Syrian Kurds have crossed the border into Turkey over the past few days, fleeing the brutality of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), according to Reuters news agency.

"We are prepared for the worst scenario, which is an influx of hundreds of thousands of refugees," Numan Kurtulmus told reporters in the capital Ankara.

The figures released by the Turkish government come shortly after the United Nations said the number of refugees was around 100,000.

The refugees have arrived since Thursday.

Syrian Kurds were leaving the area around Ain al-Arab, or Kobane, as the town is known in Kurdish, which is under attack by ISIS forces.

Until now, Kobane, the third biggest Kurdish population centre in Syria, had been relatively safe and had taken in 200,000 people displaced from elsewhere in Syria.
