18:17, May 13, 2013

BEIJING, May 13 (Xinhua) -- Foreign Ministry spokesman Hong Lei said China condemns the twin car bombings that killed at least 46 people and injured more than 100 in a Turkish border town on Saturday.

"China opposes any violent attacks that target civilians," Hong said at a press briefing on Monday.

He extended condolences to the bombing victims and expressed sympathy for the Turkish government and people, as well as the victims' families and the wounded.

On Saturday, two car bombings shook the town of Reyhanli near the Turkish-Syrian border, triggering fears that Syria's unrest is spilling over to its neighbors.

Media reports stated that nine Turks have been arrested in connection with the bombings. A related investigation is still under way.
