Syria denies involvement in Turkey car bombs

DAMASCUS (AP) - Syria's information minister has rejected Turkey's allegations that his country was behind two car bombs that killed 43 people in Turkey and wounded dozens more.

Information Minister Omran al-Zoubi told a news conference on Sunday that "no one has the right to make false accusations".

He says that "this is not the behaviour of the Syrian government".

Mr Zoubi's comments were the first official Syrian response since Saturday's bombings in the Turkish border town of Reyhanli, near Syria.
