    An explosion on the border between Turkey's southern province of Hatay and Syria has killed six people, Turkish media says.

    There were, however, conflicting reports about the cause and exact location of Tuesday's blast.

    Some Turkish television reports said the explosion was at an ammunition depot, while other media reports said the blast happened in a vehicle carrying scrap metal on the Syrian side of the border, Reuters said.
