There was also a rally at the same spot last night, February 19, for journalist Bashar Kadumi who went missing in Syria. His family and loved ones held rallies in front of the Syrian Consulate at Sisli in Istanbul, and a group of journalists in front of the Syrian Embassy in Ankara.
The group gathered in front of the Syrian Embassy asked for the release of journalist Fehmi Bashar Kadum, who has been missing for 184 days.
Kadumi’s family, journalist colleagues and actor Nur Surer participated in the rallies.
The protestors, who carried “Syria, Give Us Bashar Back” slogans, dispersed after rallying for a period at the entrance to the consulate building.
There were also rallies for Kadumi in Ankara. Colleagues wanting the release of the journalist rallied in from of the Syrian Embassy in Ankara. Cuneyt Unal, who was released after 87 days of being held captive in Syria, was also in attendance. The protestors dispersed after the group concluded shouting slogans.
Cuneyt Unal, who worked for the US-funded al-Hurra television channel, and his colleague Bashar Fahmi Kadumi, had went missing shortly after crossing into Syria from Turkey on August 20, 2012 to cover the civil war in the war-torn city of Aleppo. While Unal was released in November, Kadumi has yet to be released.Last Mod: 20 Şubat 2013, 15:41
