Syria: Explosions In Turkish Town Near Border

At least four people have been killed and 18 injured in a series of explosions in a Turkish town close to the border with Syria.

The Hurriyet newspaper quoted the interior minister as saying the explosions in Reyhanli were caused by two car bombs.

"According to the initial information we received, four people were killed and eighteen people were wounded. Of course we're worried that the numbers could rise," Muammer Guler told reporters in comments broadcast on Turkish television.

The town hall and a post office were reportedly hit.
