France: "In the name of humanity, France must act in Kobane" say protesting Kurds

France, Paris
October 7, 2014 at 17:14 GMT +00:00 · Published

About 300 pro-Kurdish supporters demonstrated near the French national Assembly in Paris Tuesday, denouncing advances by Islamic State (IS) fighters into the Syrian city of Kobane. The protesters called on the international community to intervene against IS.

Protesters are also upset over the perceived lack of action to protect predominantly Kurdish Kobane, located in Syria near the Turkish border, from IS fighters. Some have questioned why airstrikes by the United States and other nations directed against IS fighters in Syria have not focused on protecting Kobane.
