A bomb exploded less than 150 metres (yards) from the Turkish border, with the force of the blast blowing out windows in houses in the Turkish town of Ceylanpinar just across the border.

    Syrian bombs fell on a town held by opposition forces just yards from the Turkish border Monday. Helicopters and warplanes struck the town of Ras Al-Ain, which last week fell under rebel control. The warplane that dropped explosives within a stone’s throw of a frontier fence veered close to the limits of Syrian airspace and may have crossed over into Turkey, according to a Reuters reporter on the ground. Civilians from the Syrian town fled into Turkey as the bombs fell.
