Kurdish demonstration

Kurds in the north eastern city of Qamishli have been
demonstrating against the death of a religious cleric
last week. His family have blamed intelligence
services for his death but this hasnt been
independently confirmed. They say he was tortured but
he preached reconciliation between the government and
the kurdish minority. Last year tens of people were
killed when rioting broke out between rival groups in
that city. So far the only death has been a policeman
but its unclear how he died.
