AP Interview: Syrian activist's son urges protest
AP Interview: Son of assassinated Syrian activist calls for huge Kurdish protests in Syria
By The Associated Press

SULAIMANIYAH, Iraq (AP) ' The son of an assassinated Kurdish opposition leader in Syria says his father's death will encourage more Kurds in Syria to protest against the regime there.

In a telephone interview Sunday with The Associated Press from Irbil, Faris Tammo called on Syrian Kurdish groups to take a more active role in the country's nearly 7-month-old uprising against President Bashar Assad.

Tammo has been living in Iraq's Kurdish autonomous region since 2008, when he fled Syria when his father was arrested.

His father, Mashaal Tammo, was assassinated Friday by masked gunmen.

Kurds make up 15 percent of Syria's 23 million people and have long complained of discrimination.
