BEIRUT - A bomb attack claimed by Islamic State killed at least three people in the city of Qamishli in the mostly Kurdish-controlled Hasaka province of northeast Syria on Sunday, a Kurdish official and a monitoring group said.
The motorcycle bomb went off in a mostly Christian area and wounded another seven people, said Redur Xelil of the Kurdish YPG militia.
Islamic State claimed the attack in a statement posted online shortly after the incident. The British-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, which monitors the civil war in Syria, confirmed the blast and the casualties.
