Kurds protest against Assad in Qamişlo


Thousands of Syrians took to the streets to protest against the Syrian regime today, despite a strong security forces presence. Kurdish people staged huge demonstrations in Qamişlo.

The United Nations has said more than 9,000 protesters have been killed since the Syrian regime began its crackdown on the one-year old uprising. Activists have warned that the number of those killed is hugely underestimated by the United Nations.
