Death toll from two explosions feared to rise as ISIL claims attack targeting Kurdish area Qamishli.
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 explosions blew up on the western edge of the town of Qamishli, near the Turkish border, on Wednesday. Minutes later, a motorcycle packed with explosions 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.
