Kurdish protesters marched through downtown Copenhagen to plead for intervention in the Kurdish Syrian border town of Kobane.
Around 2,000 protesters, many of them of Kurdish descent, took to the streets of Copenhagen on Thursday evening for a peaceful protest calling for intervention in the Syrian town of Kobane, which is under siege by terrorists from Isis.
The demonstration started at the Town Hall Square (Rådhuspladsen) and ended at the parliament building, Christiansborg.
