Turkey's interior minister says authorities have detained nine people in connection with the car bomb attacks that killed 46 people in a Turkish town near the Syrian border.

Muammer Guler says the attacks were carried out by a group linked to Syria's intelligence service, but did not name the group.

Syria on Sunday rejected Turkey's allegations that it was behind the bombs.

Guler said authorities had so far identified 35 people who died in the attack and three of them were Syrians.
