Several huge explosions have struck a Turkey town on the border of Syria. Initial reports have said that at least 18 and possibly more than 30 people have been killed as a result of the latest carnage to strike the Middle East.
Several explosions shook a Turkish town on Saturday near the border with Syria where mortar fire has in the past spilled over from the Syrian civil war, a local official said.
Turkey’s Dogan news agency said four blasts occurred near the municipality offices in the town of Reyhanli in the southern Turkish province of Hatay, and that some people were wounded.
The local official told Reuters he had heard two explosions.
