London protest

Hundreds of people have protested in Central London on Saturday to call for the government to end the bloodshed in Syria, the Guardian reported.

The demonstration, just opposite the gates to Downing Street, included children wearing “Save Aleppo” T-shirts and activists carrying placards urging a “No-bomb zone now”, while some flew Syrian flags.

Campaigners supported by several human right groups including the Amnesty International were accompanied by famous British actress Carey Mulligan, who described the rally as an opportunity to “stand up and say that we need to do something real”.

Protesters delivered a letter to Number 10 demanding British Prime Minister Theresa May take action to help end the violence. It comes after the prime minister insisted on Friday that the EU must keep “all options” open if Russia continued to commit atrocities in the conflict zone.
