DAMASCUS, Syria — Syria's state-run news agency says three suicide bombers have detonated their explosive belts in a hotel in the northeastern town of Qamishli, killing three people.
The town has a predominantly Kurdish population. The area has been the scene of heavy battles recently between Kurdish gunmen and members of the al-Qaida breakaway group, the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant.
A Kurdish official in Qamishli, Juan Mohammed, confirmed Tuesday's attacks. He said there were casualties but had no exact figures.
He said the Hadaya hotel in the town's center functioned as the municipality building.
