Jailed Syrian activists on hunger strike

Damascus: A group of 10 women activists detained by Syrian authorities in a protest earlier this week have launched a hunger strike, rights groups said yesterday.
“All women jailed after the peaceful protest on Wednesday outside the interior ministry have begun an open-ended hunger strike in the Duma detention centre for women,” said the Syrian League for Human Rights, an umbrella group of several rights monitors.
The statement named the women as Suheir Atassi, Sirine Khoury, Ruba and Laila Labwani, Dana Jawabreh, Nisrine Hassan, Wafaa Lahham, Nahed Badawiyya, Siba Hassan and Hervine Awssi.
