Explosion Near Turkish-Syrian Border Kills 13

Turkey's interior minister, Muammar Guler, says the death toll from bombings near the country's border with Syria has risen to 40, with about 100 more wounded.

Guler says two car bombs went off in the town of Reyhanli, just a few kilometers from a Syria border crossing. Turkish media outlets had reported earlier that there were four blasts Saturday.

Several ambulances were dispatched to the scene to treat the victims. No one has claimed responsibility for the carnage.
