Protesters clashed with police in Berlin on Saturday, after a demonstration against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad turned chaotic.
Police detained several protesters who broke through a police cordon that was guarding counter-demonstrators near the Russian embassy.
Around 250 people joined the march in the German capital, marking the eighth anniversary of the Syrian uprising under the pouring rain, waving banners and shouting slogans like ‘Assad must go,’ and ‘Out with Putin,’ among others.
Cities such as Damascus and Homs experienced major civil unrest, starting on 15 March 2011 and coming to an end by late July.
