Syrians stage protests in Cairo against Russian support for Assad

Scores of Syrians staged protests outside the Russian Embassy in Cairo on Sunday, condemning Russian support for Bashar al-Assad’s regime, including the supply of weapons with which to kill his people, as they put it.

A representative of the Russian ambassador promised the protesters that the embassy would relay their demands to the Russian government.

The protesters threatened to organize vigils before Russian embassies all over the world until Russia stops supporting Assad.

They also criticized the position of the Egyptian government, and called on it to recognize their revolution and deport the Syrian ambassador.
