Two explosions have struck a predominantly Kurdish town in northern Syria, killing at least 50 people and wounding dozens.
Syrian state TV said a truck loaded with explosives blew up on the western edge of the town of Qamishli, near the Turkish border, on Wednesday. Minutes later, a motorcycle also packed with explosives blew up in the same area.
The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), also known as ISIS claimed responsibility for the attack.
The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the explosion targeted a centre of the local Kurdish police and a nearby government building.
ISIL has carried out several bombings in Kurdish areas in Syria in the past.
