KURDS DEMONSTRATE IN ALEPPO



But no one notices or seems to care that 100 of them were arrested. That is the pity.

DAMASCUS — More than 100 people were arrested last week in northern Syria when a demonstration by thousands of Kurds celebrating their New Year turned violent, a human rights activist said yesterday. . . .

Last Monday, about 3,000 Kurds had gathered in Aleppo to celebrate Noruz, carrying candles and Kurdish flags, when police fired tear gas and demonstrators hurled stones.

If only others joined them.
