Car bomb kills at least 29 in northern Syria

BEIRUT - A car bomb ripped through a crowded garage near a rebel-held border crossing between Syria and Turkey Thursday, killing at least 29 people in an area that has seen fierce fighting between rival rebel groups, an anti-government activist group said.

 

The attack came as President Bashar Assad's forces have seized the momentum of the country's civil war, now in its fourth year, ahead of presidential elections scheduled for June 3. (AP)
