Car blast hits Northern Syria; kills at least 17 people
 
Syria June 03(Agencies)
In Syria, at least 17 people have been killed near a mosque in a northern town held by Turkey-backed fighters, and wounded dozens of people.

The blast in the town of Azaz occurred late on Sunday as scores of people were leaving the mosque of Maytam, wounding dozens including children.

The blast occurred after the "iftar" meal that breaks a daylong fast during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan. The attack came a few days before Muslims celebrate the end of the holy month with Eid el-Fitr, one of Islam's most important feasts.

The town, which was once controlled by rival Kurdish fighters opposed to Turkey, has been hit by similar attacks in the past.
