Bomb kills four at Syria refugee camp on Jordan border

World Bulletin / News Desk

Bomb blast struck a Syrian refugee camp near the border with Jordan on Saturday amid reports of casualties. 

Jordan’s official Petra news agency, citing a military source, said an explosion went off inside the Rakban camp. 

Syrian local media said the blast was caused by a car-bomb and caused deaths and injuries. 

There was no claim of responsibility for the bombing. 

The Rakban camp is home to more than 85,000 Syrian refugees, who fled a raging conflict in Syria. 

The camp was targeted by a bomb blast last month. 

Syria has been locked in a devastating civil war since early 2011, when the Bashar al-Assad regime cracked down on pro-democracy protests with unexpected ferocity.
