Over the weekend, two car bombs ripped through the heart of Reyhanli, Turkey, a small town on the border Syria. The twin explosions, set 15 minutes apart, killed 46 people.
The BBC's Mideast correspondent Wyre Davies was in the city and witnessed the chaos after the bomb blasts.
Davies says that people in Reyhanli are getting angry at Syrian refugees whom they see as the reason for these attacks.
