ANKARA, Turkey (AP) - Officials say Turkish troops have retaliated to cross-border shelling from Syria for the sixth day in a row.

The office for the governor of the Turkish border province of Hatay says a Syrian shell landed on Turkish territory Monday afternoon, prompting immediate retaliatory strikes from Turkey.

Earlier, the state-run Anadolu agency said the shell landed on a cotton field near the town of Altinozu. People were working on the field, but no one was injured.

Turkey and Syria have been firing artillery and mortars across their volatile border since Wednesday after shelling from Syria killed five civilians.
