No joy for Kurds in Syria

Froim the Australian Herald Sun: bq. Syrian authorities have arrested more than 1000 Kurds as part of a continuing campaign against the Kurdish minority, a Syrian human rights group claimed today. bq. It was the second report in less than a week of an alleged clampdown on Kurds in Syria since last month's clashes between Syrian security forces and Kurdish rioters in which 25 were killed and more than 100 wounded. Hey George - please, can we do Syria next??? A democracy there would be very nice. Posted by DaveH at April 14, 2004 1:33 PM
