Dec. 16 (UPI) -- A vehicle laden with bombs exploded at a marketplace in Syria's northern province of Aleppo, killing at least eight and injuring dozens of other people Sunday afternoon, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.
The Britain-based monitor group said the explosion struck al-Hal market in Afrin, 27 miles north of the provincial capital city of Aleppo.
The death toll is expected to rise because some people were in critical situation, the group said.
The Turkish state-run Anadolu news agency said four people were killed and 20 wounded.
No militant group has claimed responsibility for the attack.
Security forces sealed off the scene and members of the White Helmets provided help to the victims.
