Hundreds of military families urged to leave Turkey

Hundreds of U.S. military families are urged to leave southern Turkey amid new concerns about safety, a defense official said Thursday.

The voluntary evacuation potentially affects about 900 people and comes after Turkey recently authorized U.S. combat aircraft to fly missions over Iraq and Syria from a key Turkish military installation.
