BEIRUT (AP) -- Syria's state TV says a car bomb has exploded in a predominantly Kurdish town in northern Syria, killing at least one person and wounding 50 people.

The TV says the car blew up on the western edge of the town of Qamishli, near the Turkish border on Wednesday.

The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights says the explosion targeted a center of the local Kurdish police and a nearby government building.

No one immediately claimed responsibility for the attack but the Islamic State group has carried out several bombings in Kurdish areas in Syria in the past.

The predominantly Kurdish U.S.-backed Syria Democratic Forces have been the main force fighting IS in northern Syria and have captured wide areas from the extremists.
