ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION)
STORY: Two car bombs exploded in the Turkish town of Reyhanli near the Syrian border on Saturday, killing at least four people and wounding 18 others.
Turkey's interior minister was reported as saying that two cars exploded in front of the municipality building and the post office in Reyhanli.
Turkey is a staunch supporter of the uprising against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, now in its third year, and has harboured both Syrian refugees and rebels. Violence has sometimes spilled over the border.
There was no immediate claim of responsibility for Saturday's bomb attack, but Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu warned against "testing Turkey's power", and said necessary measures would be taken.
Turkey is sheltering more than 300,000 Syrians, most of them in camps along the 900-km (560-mile) frontier, and is struggling to keep up with the influx.
