(ROUGH CUT ONLY - NO REPORTER NARRATION) A deadly minibus blast on Turkey's border with Syria was meant to target a Syrian National Council (SNC) opposition delegation, the group said on Tuesday (February 12), but the Turkish authorities said it was too early to apportion blame. The minibus, bearing Syrian number plates, exploded at a crossing on the border near the Turkish town of Reyhanli on Monday (February 11), killing 14 people and wounding dozens more. The SNC said the bombing occurred as a delegation comprising the group's leadership was expected to pass through the crossing to hold talks with Syrian rebels. Turkish police investigations were focusing on three people seen leaving the minibus before the explosion. The minibus was parked in a waiting area at the Cilvegozu border post, one of the main crossing points for humanitarian aid into Syria, before it exploded, according to the Turkish government.
