Suicide bomber kills 51 near Syria town taken from IS

Suicide bomber kills 51 near Syria town taken from ISAl-Bab (Syria) (AFP) – A suicide bomber attacked Turkish-backed rebels outside the Syrian town of Al-Bab Friday, killing 51 people in a major blow just hours after they hailed its capture from the Islamic State group. The bomber blew up a vehicle packed with explosives outside a rebel command centre in the village of Susian, eight kilometres (five miles) northeast of Al-Bab, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said. There was no immediate claim for the attack, but rebels blamed it on IS, which had put up fierce resistance in Al-Bab for weeks.
