Kurds in Germany protest Turkish Syria offensive

Kurds in Germany protest
Hundreds of Kurds took to the streets of Cologne on Saturday in protest over Turkey's offensive in northern Syria, as German officials warned against tensions between the country's huge Kurdish and Turkish communities.

The protest, which organizers expect will see up to 20,000 participants, came a week after Turkish special forces and allied Syrian rebels launched an assault targeting Kurdish militia the People's Protection Units (YPG) in northern Syria.

"Freedom for Kurdistan" and "Shame on you, Europe!" read some of the protesters' placards in the western German city.
