UK: Protesters clash with police at pro-Kurdish rally in London

Clashes broke out between protesters and police as authorities attempted to stop pro-Kurdish protesters marching through Westminster, London, on Monday. Around 150 protesters marched from Downing Street, the residence of British PM, to Westminster Bridge, just next to the parliament, where they clashed with police. Protesters demanded an end to Britain's arms sales to Turkey, and for the... Еще international community to speak out against Turkey's involvement in Afrin. The protest comes as Turkish forces make advances towards Afrin city. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan announced on Friday that troops could enter the city «at any moment». In January, Erdogan announced the beginning of the operation against the Kurdish People's Protection Units (YPG). Turkey views the YPG, which is active in northern Syria, as an extension of the banned Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) group.
