BEIRUT (AP) -- A Turkish official says a shell fired from Syria has landed on a home in neighboring Turkey, killing at least three people, including a 6-year-old boy.

Abdulhakim Ayhan is the mayor of the Turkish town of Akcakale, which is along the Syrian border. He told Turkey's state-owned Anadolu Agency that the boy and a woman were among the dead in Wednesday's shelling.

Anadolu Agency reported angry townspeople marched to the mayor's office to protest the deaths.
