This afternoon at about 1:45 p.m. local time there were at least two large explosions, believed to have been car bombs, in Reyhanlı, Turkey.
The second explosion happened several minutes after the first. I just saw a cell phone video of the second explosion and it seems to have been huge.
Twenty deaths were being reported and at least 46 wounded, several seriously.
The number of dead is now put at 40 with more than 100 wounded.
The death toll is now 42. More than 20 of those wounded are said to be in serious condition.
Sunday morning local time - the death toll is now 46 with 51 wounded still hospitalized, many of them in serious condition.
The explosions occured in the center of the town near city hall and many buildings have been very badly damaged.
Reyhanlı is east of Hatay, Turkey and right on the Turkish-Syrian border. The Syrian side of the border is under rebel control. Much of the humanitarian assistance sent to Syria goes through the border crossing which is very near Reyhanlı. There is also quite a lot of unofficial foot traffic back and forth across the border near Reyhanlı, and areas near Reyhanlı are believed to be some of the locations where weapons being sent to Syrian rebels are transported across the border.
No one has claimed responsibility.
