Bombing in Kurdish-controlled Syrian town kills at least five

At least five people were killed and scores injured on Wednesday in a bomb attack on a local administrative office in the Kurdish-held Syrian town of Tel Abyad, near the Turkish border, witnesses said.

They said a suicide car bomber had attacked the building run by Kurdish local authorities in the town, which was captured by the powerful YPG militia last year from Islamic State militants in an offensive backed by US-led air strikes.

Tel Abyad lies north of Raqqa and had been a key supply line for the jihadi capital.
