ʿAmudah: Kidnapped victims released

KURDWATCH, July 15, 2013—From July 2 to July 10, 2013, the Asayiş, the security service of the Democratic Union Party (PYD), released at least forty-nine kidnapped activists from ʿAmudah and the surrounding area. Ten people were released on July 2, fifteen on July 4, six on July 6, and eighteen on July 10. The exact number of those kidnapped and those released remains unknown, as the PYD continues to keep ʿAmudah closed off from the outside. Human rights organizations and independent groups are being denied access. Muhammad Khair Bango, member of the politburo for the Kurdish Union Party in Syria (Yekîtî), is still being detained.
