A car bomb ripped through a busy district in a rebel-held Syrian town along the Turkish border killing nearly 60 people in a massive explosion that damaged buildings and left rescuers scrambling to find survivors amid the wreckage.

Doctors and rescue personnel said that close to 100 people were wounded, many of the suffering from severe burns.

More that 50 of the wounded individuals were transported to the Turkish border town of Kilis for treatment, as local hospitals couldn’t cope with the large number of the injured people.

The bomb went off outside a local courthouse and security headquarters operated by the opposition fighters who control the town, resident and activist Saif Alnajdi told The Associated Press from Azaz.

A medical worker speaking to a local media outfit, al-Jisr, said many charred bodies, and body parts mixed with bones and mud, were piled up in local hospitals.
