KURDWATCH, March 17, 2011—On March 16, 2011, Syrian security authorities arrested at least 35 Kurdish and Arab human rights activists. Kamal Husayn Shaykhu, Nasruddin Ahmi, Harvin Usi and ʿAbdurrazzaq Tammu were among those taken into custody. Shayku had just been released from custody three days earlier, on March 13. Prior to the arrests, several hundred people had demonstrated in front of the Interior Ministry in Damascus, demanding the release of all political prisoners. Members of various Syrian security authorities violently ended the protest by beating people.
