The Kurdish blogger Kamal Hussein Sheikou arrested

The Kurdish blogger Kamal Hussein Sheikou, the author of many articles on the All4syria website, was arrested during a demonstration outside the interior ministry in Damascus just two days after being freed on bail. He was held on the same charges as those on which he was arrested on 23 June 2010, trying to enter Lebanon using his brother’s passport (http://en.rsf.org/syrie-growing-cra...). He was released again on 10 May on 5,000 Syrian pounds (73 euros) in bail, only to be re-arrested during a demonstration on 20 May and held for two days.
