Deadly car explosion at Turkey-Syria border

At least 14 people have been killed and 26 others wounded following a car-bomb explosion near the border between Turkey and Syria, according to the Turkish ministry of justice.

Witnesses said on Monday they saw the vehicle drive up to the Cilvegozu border post, one of the main crossing points for Syrian refugees into Turkey, shortly before the explosion.

The Cilvegozu border gate, several miles outside the town of Reyhanli, sits opposite the Syrian gate of Bab al-Hawa, which the rebels captured last July.

Refugees cross back and forth and Turkish lorries also deliver goods into no-man's land between the two gates, where they are picked up by Syrians.

Bulent Arinc, deputy prime minister, said the Turkish government was investigating all possible causes for the blast, including a suicide attack, but it was wrong to jump to hasty conclusions.

"The information that we have for now is that a minibus with Syrian number plates coming form the other side exploded. It was a powerful explosion," Arinc, who is also the government spokesman, said after a regular cabinet meeting.

    • @Eru I don't think he meant it for the people that run after the explosion but for those that may used that bomb - but to be honest, i think that in this border crossing there are many Turkish soldiers and FSA terrorists my dear neighbour...

    • @Jouhai you make some very good points, the two points where i differ (slightly) from you are the sports, while i agree with you that the NFL is dominated by african americans, there are still many, many incredible white players, and most of the time they occupy the team's most important positions (ie quarterback, kicker, etc.)

      the second point, while i fully agree with you that there should be government intervention into this cancer called islam that is infesting western culture, theres not More..

    • @Kitten_Mittens Killing Muslims/Blacks whatever is not what I'm talking about. Toppling the traitorous Governments and overturning/fixing the political system in our Countries (Which have been hijacked) is what I'm talking about.

      Think 'Arab Spring', but instead a 'White Winter'.

      If the Liberals aren't disposed of, along with their ideologies/policies, your Country WILL turn into a 3rd world Nation. So will mine. So will England (well on it's way, London is already a shithole).

      Prove you wrong? Again, cite me your source.

      Muslims make up 0.8% of the population in the U.S and only 2.8% of the population in Canada.

      In Canada, the Aboriginal population is going to outnumber everyone soon, as they are having the most kids in terms of ratio.

      Also, here's my source, where it shows the number of terrorist attacks in the U.S from 1980 to 2005, and radical Muslims make up only 6% of the overall attacks. There was more terrorist attacks carried out by L More..

      Where is this hatred coming from. I really wanna know why my fellow Americans are psychopaths like you. Despite of the borders we virtually drew, we are only and all humans.

      More hatred will only bring more blood and death to the U.S.

      Please see a doctor, if you can't you will be one of the threats to our country and to human kind. You are sick.

    • @Value343 Funny thing is that your country is responsible for most of the violence and death in the world today, and I'm not talking about modern politics alone but what you did in the previous centuries; I don't blame YOU though, you're just an ignorant bitch who doesn't understand what you're saying, though I do hope that one day you learn what genuine violence is..

      And BTW it's not anyone's fault that your people were so moronic as to name an animal that comes from India after the country More..
