"Despite overwhelming international condemnation, the Syrian government continues to exact brutal reprisals against its own citizens, including, tragically, the deaths of hundreds of Syrians since March. They engage in unlawful detention and torture and the denial of medical care to wounded persons," said U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, speaking at a press conference in Greenland's capital on Thursday.
It began with a small group chanting anti-government slogans. As the demonstrators marched through the campus, more and more students joined and the group swelled to several thousand, a political activist in Aleppo said.
They called for "freedom" and chanted "with our blood, with our souls we will sacrifice for you, Daraa," a slogan in solidarity with the people of that city, where the anti-government protests began two months ago.
A group of 50 pro-government protesters joined by hundreds of security forces confronted the students and began beating them with sticks and batons. The activist said the demonstrations were dispersed and several people were injured.
"We were only armed with our notebooks and pencils," the activist said.
