Twin car bombs in Turkey killed 41 people and injured 100 others Saturday.

The double blast occurred in a crowded area of the small town of Reyhanli in the southern Turkish province of Hatay, just a few kilometers from the main border crossing into Syria.

Al Jazeera quoted Bulent Arinc, Deputy Prime Minister of Turkey, as saying that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and his government were the "usual suspects" behind the car bombs.

Arinc added, however, that Turkey must wait for the results of an investigation before deciding on any response.

The town is home to many of the more than 300,000 refugees who have sought shelter from the uprising against Assad that began over two years ago.
