Anti-government demo broken up in Damascus
About 100 human rights activists protested today in Damascus.
Their demo was broken up by a similar number of pro-government supporters on a counter-march. The incredible scenes are thought to have occurred outside the court and in Merjeh.
No arrests are reported.
The demo occured a day after the largely spontaneous march in support of Bashar - the largest demonstration in the last 40 years in Syria.
Has the largely peaceful turf war in the highest levels of government spread down to even Merjeh now?
