Why I'm here

Lebanese police have forcefully prevented about a dozen Syrians from holding a sit-in in front of the European Union offices in Beirut. Friday's sit-in was to mark 2004 bloody clashes between Syrian Kurds and security forces that left at least 25 people dead and some 100 injured. Placards read, "Why I'm here, Syrian Kurd children victims of the elimination of racism'. AP/Hussein Malla
