Syrian minister blames 'murderer' Erdogan for bombings

MOSCOW - Syria's information minister has blamed Turkey's government for deadly car bombings near the Syrian border and branded Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan a "murderer," state-run Russian TV company RT reported on Monday.
"All responsibility for what has happened lies with the Turkish government and Erdogan personally," RT quoted Omran Zoubi as saying in an interview with its Arabic-language channel.
"I demand his resignation as a murderer and an executioner. He has no right to build a political career on the blood of the Turkish and Syrian people," RT quoted Zoubi as saying.
It said he repeated a denial of Syrian involvement in car bombings that killed 46 people on Saturday in the Turkish border town of Reyhanli. Turkey has accused a group with links to Syrian intelligence of carrying out the attacks.
