Kurds divided by Syrian uprising
 Part of channel(s): Syria (current event)

For centuries, the towns of Turkish Nusaybin and Syrian Qamishli were one, until politics put a border between them.

governments of both countries have been hard on rebellious Kurdish
minorities in the region. Now, with the uprising in Syria, many Kurds
see the potential for major political gains.

While some want to
play a greater role in the opposition, others believe Kurdish interests
are best served by working with the Syrian government.
