At least 14 people have been killed in a truck bomb explosion in the Turkish-controlled town of Al-Bab in northwest Syria, a war monitor, activists and medics said.

The explosion on Tuesday near a bus station also wounded at least 40 people, some of them seriously, the United Kingdom-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.

The Syrian Civil Defence, also known as the White Helmets, a search-and-rescue group that operates in rebel-held parts of Syria, said a rescue operation is underway.

A witness said the blast occurred when a large truck bomb went off in a crowded area in the town controlled by Turkish-backed rebel factions.

Videos and images circulated by activists on social media showed large plumes of smoke rising from the blast site, along with several fires and damaged buildings.
