Thousands of people, some shouting 'Erdogan terrorist', took to the streets of Paris and other European cities on Saturday in protest at the Turkish assault on Kurds in Syria. Protesters marching under the Kurdish green, red and yellow flag waved placards reading 'Trump = serial killer' or calling Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan 'the true leader of Daesh,' the Arabic acronym for the Islamic State jihadist group. Organisers said 'more than 20,000 people' took part in the demonstration in Paris after Ankara stepped up its assault on Kurdish-held border towns in northeastern Syria on Saturday, defying mounting threats of international sanctions.
