Thousands protest in Turkey to show solidarity with Kobane Kurds

Thousands of people on Saturday took to the streets of Turkey and major European cities in a show of solidarity with the mainly Kurdish Syrian town of Kobane which has been besieged by jihadists for over six weeks. The rallies in Turkey were largely peaceful, following deadly unrest in October pro-Kurdish protests and warnings from the authorities they would not tolerate any disorder this time, AFP correspondents said. In an international show of support for Kobane, rallies also took place in European cities including Brussels, Hamburg, London, Munich and Paris. The advance of Islamic State (IS) jihadists on Kobane in mid-September forced some 200,000 refugees to flee across the border to Turkey.
