One suspect detained in probe into Turkish-Syrian border blast
[Xinhua] One suspect was detained as part of an investigation into a blast at the Turkish-Syrian border gate Cilvegozu in Turkey's southern province Hatay on Wednesday, local newspaper Today's Zaman reported on its website.

At least 14 people including three Turkish citizens were killed and dozen others injured in the blast, which apparently targeted Syrian opposition figures who were supposed to go through the area of incident.

Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan has vowed to take actions on the explosion after the investigation into the case is completed.

"We will wait patiently until the details of a deadly bomb attack at the Cilvegozu border gate are fully clarified, and will then take all required steps without hesitation," said Erdogan.

Reyhanli town, where the Cilvegozu gate is located, is 45 km from Syria's Idlib and 60 km from Aleppo, the two towns that have become the main battlefields between the Syrian rebels and President Bashar al-Assad's forces.
