13 dead in car bomb blast
in Syria

A car bomb killed at least 13 people in a Turkish-held border town in northeast Syria yesterday, as thousands of Kurds in the wider region protested against a "Turkish occupation". The bombing ripped through Tal Abyad, one of several once Kurdish-controlled towns seized by Turkey last month in a deadly cross-border offensive. The blast came despite a truce last week to halt a Turkish assault that began on October 9 and sparked the latest humanitarian disaster of Syria's eight-year civil war.
