Blasts Kill Dozens In Turkish Town Reyhanli On Syria border -- BBC

Car bombs have killed 40 people and injured 100 in the Turkish town of Reyhanli, near the Syrian border, Turkey's interior minister says.

Muammer Guler told Turkey's NTV that two bombs had gone off in the town near the town hall and post office.

Video from the scene showed injured people being carried to safety in rubble-strewn streets, amid shattered buildings and twisted wrecks of cars.

The town is an entry-point for refugees from the war in Syria.

Local people attacked cars with Syrian number-plates and Syrian refugees after the attack, according to local media.

Emergency services looked for possible victims buried under the debris.

No group said they had carried out the attack.
