A car bomb exploded on the Syrian side of the main Bab al-Hawa border crossing with Turkey on Tuesday, killing at least seven people and wounding 20, the Turkish news agency Dogan said.
The explosion occurred at a roadblock manned by hardline Islamist fighters at the entrance of the rebel-held crossing, several hundred metres from the Turkish side, activists said.
The wounded were rushed to Turkish hospitals. Dogan reported seven people killed – a figure unconfirmed by the Turkish foreign ministry.
Pictures taken by activists at the scene showed several burnt and mangled cars.
