New Straits Times - - World -

BEIRUT: A bomb blast killed at least four peo­ple and wounded many more in a rebel-held town in north­ern Syria near the Turk­ish bor­der yes­ter­day, the Syr­ian Ob­ser­va­tory for Hu­man Rights mon­i­tor­ing group said. The ex­plo­sion hit the town of Azaz, which has long been an im­por­tant base for rebels, in­clud­ing groups backed by Turkey. There was no im­me­di­ate claim of re­spon­si­bil­ity for the blast, which the Bri­tish­based ob­ser­va­tory said was likely from a car bomb. AGEN­CIES
