Kurds blocked motorway on their way to Strasbourg
27 July 2012
Bus stopped by police
Kurds leaving from Paris to join today's demonstration in Strasbourg for Kurdish leader Abdullah Öcalan have been stopped by police. They answered by stopping the traffic staging a road protest on the motorway.
It is understood that the bus leaving from Paris to bring the demonstrators into Strasbourg was stopped by police late last night.
Young people then decided to answer to such a prevarication by police by occupying the road.
The police is said to have stopped the bus to carry out a search, but the people on board opposed to it.
