Protests erupt in Turkish town after bombings
Protests erupted in a Turkish town near the Syrian border on Saturday after twin car bombs killed at least 40 people, with some locals blaming Syrian residents for bringing violence over the frontier and others railing against Turkey's foreign policy and calling on Prime Minister Erdogan to resign.

 

Police reinforcements were sent to the town of Reyhanli after the bombs ripped into crowded streets in the early afternoon, scattering cars and concrete blocks. The town is home to thousands of Syrians who have fled their country's civil war. (Reuters)
