At least 10 people died when an explosion hit the Turkish border town of Suruc near the border with Syria on Monday, local television reported.
The cause was not immediately clear.
A Turkish government official confirmed to AFP that the blast took place in the garden of a culture centre in Suruc -- which lies opposite the Syrian flashpoint town of Kobane. But he declined to provide any toll.
Several media reported fatalities and NTV said at least 10 people had been killed.
