Syria arrests top free expression advocate
DAMASCUS (Reuters) - Syrian authorities have arrested leading rights activist Mazen Darwish, an outspoken critic of Syria's record on freedom of expression, a rights group said on Thursday.
Darwish, who took part in a protest to demand the release of political prisoners last week, was arrested after he was called in for questioning by security police on Wednesday, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.
