The cause of the explosions is unknown. Thousands of refugees have fled Syria across the Reynhanli border.

Five people were killed last October when a mortar round hit the Turkish border town of Akcakale.

The mayor of Reyhanli Huseyin Sanverdi told Turkish media that a municipal building and a post office were hit.

Interior Minister Muammer Guler promised a government investigation.

The border area of Reyhanli has itself been attacked in recent months. In February, dozens of people were wounded when a mortar round landed close to a border gate.
