At least five people have been killed after an explosion targetted a US convoy in the northeast of Syria, AFP reports.

Local sources say that a car bomb, of Hunday Model, targeted the 47 checkpoint when a US-led coalition convoy passed by, 13 kilometers to the west of Shadadi.

We can confirm a combined U.S. and Syrian partner force convoy was involved in an apparent VBIED attack today in Syria. There were no U.S. casualties.  We will continue to review the situation and provide updates as appropriate, the OIR tweeted.
