Report: Car bomb kills 5 near Syria border

ISTANBUL (AP) - Turkish media say a car bomb has exploded near a crossing point along Syria's border, killing at least five people.

State-run Anadolu news agency says the explosion happened Monday on Turkish soil, about 40 meters from a border gate in the Reyhanli district of Hatay province. Anadolu says five people were killed.

The border area between the two countries has been the scene of often fierce fighting between rebels and President Bashar Assad's forces during the nearly two-year-old Syrian conflict.
