Bomb kills 29 near Syria-Turkey border: monitors

BEIRUT--A car bomb killed at least 29 civilians and wounded dozens more on the Syrian side of the Bab al-Salama border crossing with Turkey on Thursday, a monitoring group said.

Five women and three children were among the dead in the blast in an area used as a car park, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.

Gruesome photographs posted online by activists showed shocked men standing over charred, blackened bodies, some missing limbs.

A video of the scene posted on YouTube showed smoke rising from the tangled remains of a blown-up car and luggage lying abandoned amid the chaos.

The area around the crossing has been targeted by car bombs before.
