BEIRUT - Islamic State claimed responsibility on Friday for a triple suicide truck bomb attack that killed dozens of people in a Kurdish-held town in northeastern Syria late on Thursday.

Three of its fighters driving three separate vehicles blew themselves up targeting "bases" of Kurdish fighters in the town of Tel Tamer in Hasaka province, killing 60 people, the group said in a statement posted online.

A spokesman for the Kurdish YPG militia which controls the town said earlier that 50 to 60 people, all of them civilians, had been killed in the attack.
