Latest update : 2012-03-23

This week: Bloodbath in Iraq's camp Ashraf, army crackdown in Syria and risky art in Ukraine

This week, our Observers tell us about violent clashes between Iranian opposition activists and the Iraqi army, they witness the military crackdown on Syrian protesters, and comment a provocative art event in Ukraine.

Presentation: Lorena Galliot. Editorial team: Julien Pain, Ségolène Malterre, Sarra Grira, Peggy Bruguière.

STORY 1: IRAN

Several thousand Iranian opposition activists, members of a group called the People’s Mujahedeen of Iran, have lived in a camp on Iraqi soil since 1965. The group was sheltered under Saddam Hussein’s rule, but the new Iraqi government, which has developed close ties with Tehran, now wants to get rid of these bothersome activists. Our Observer filmed violent clashes with Iraqi troops that happened in the camp on Friday, April 8.

Observer: Arman, in Camp Ashraf

STORY 2: SYRIA

The Syrian uprising was initially limited to two cities, Deraa and Latakia, but by mid-April it had spread across most of the country. Our Observer lives in a city that has recently come under siege by the Syrian army. He describes the situation.

Observer: Mohamed Abdallah, in Banias.

STORY 3: UKRAINE

Our last Observer will tell us about a performance that landed one of his artist friends in jail. The young woman apparently crossed a red line when she fried an egg over an eternal flame comemorating fallen soldiers.

Observer: Dmytro Linko
