Amman/BEIRUT (Reuters) - A car bomb exploded in Syria's sprawling Rukban refugee camp near the border with Jordan on Wednesday, two rebel sources and the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.

The blast came two days after a double car bomb attack at the same site.

Islamic State claimed responsibility for Monday's assault which killed at least six people.
