Four people have been injured in an explosion at a school in the Turkish city of Kilis, near the border with Syria.

The state-run Anadolu Agency said ambulances took the injured from the Eyup Gokceimam middle school to the public hospital in Kilis.

The mayor of Kilis, Hasan Kara, said the cause of the explosion may have been “two or more mortars” fired from Syria.

Mr Kara told Turkish NTV television no children were injured “as of now”, and the school has been evacuated.

Anadolu did not cite the cause of the explosion but said there had been material damage to the garden of the school and a car parked in the area.
