Protest erupts in Syria's Aleppo University

AMMAN - A demonstration demanding political freedoms erupted on Wednesday on the campus of the main university in Syria's second city Aleppo, human rights defenders in contacts with students said.
Aleppo, a strategic northern commercial hub near the border with Turkey, has been quiet since demonstrations against the iron-fisted rule of the Baath Party started in southern Syria three-and a-half weeks ago.
