Car bomb kills 26 in north Syria, mostly rebels: NGO

BEIRUT (AFP) - A car bomb in northern Syria killed at least 26 people on Wednesday, most of them rebels, a monitoring group said.

The bomb struck the Aleppo province town of Jarablos, scene of fierce fighting in recent days between the jihadist Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, and rival rebels.

Among the dead were three civilians, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.
