Republican U.S. presidential candidate Marco Rubio speaks to supporters at a rally in NashuaBy James Oliphant MANCHESTER, N.H.

By Gergely Szakacs and Humeyra Pamuk BUDAPEST/ONCUPINAR, Turkey (Reuters) - Turkey is admitting Syrian refugees in a "controlled manner" and has let in thousands fleeing Russian air strikes, its foreign minister said on Tuesday, warning the numbers of new migrants could reach a million if the attacks continue. An assault by Russian-backed Syrian government forces around the city of Aleppo has sent more than 30,000 people fleeing to the Turkish border gate of Oncupinar in the past few days, and officials say tens of thousands more could be on the move. Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said Turkey had so far let in 10,000 people from the latest wave, but it was not immediately clear where on the border he was referring to.
