A car bomb exploded on Sunday in the Syrian town of Tel Abyad, near the Turkish border, causing several casualties, witnesses said on Sunday.

The Arab town, from which Turkish-backed forces last October pushed out the Syrian Kurdish YPG militia, has seen a spate of car blasts that has killed dozens of civilians. It was not clear if those caught up in the blast were killed or wounded.
