Syria has detained the prominent dissident and democracy campaigner Michel Kilo, a local rights organization said Monday. Kilo was detained Sunday, days after he signed a petition calling for steps to improve Lebanese-Syrian relations, said Ammar Qurabi, the head of the National Organization for Human Rights. Kilo has long been a harsh critic of the government in Syria, which often arrests its critics.
