Children taken ill at Pascha Bay hotel in Alanya
More than 30 children have been taken ill at the Pascha Bay hotel in Alanya, 19 of them Swedish. Many of the victims were rushed to hospital suffering from diarrhoea and vomiting, put on drips and received antibiotics.
The Swedish tourists had travelled with tour operator Fritidsresor. A representative of the company told the TT news agency that the children were all ages but the youngest was just one year old.
The Turkish health authorities are making tests to find the cause of the outbreak. Salmonella has been ruled out.
