Syria denies Turkey Reyhanli car bombs role

Syria has denied being behind two car bomb attacks in a Turkish border town on Saturday that killed more than 40 people.

The information minister told a news conference in Damascus that Turkey itself was indirectly responsible.

The Turkish authorities say nine Turks have been detained following the attacks.

The BBC's Wyre Davies says there is anger on the streets of Reyhanli.
