The Syrian regime arrested thousands of opponents university

Syrian security forces arrested on Monday tens of thousands of students from the University of Aleppo, as opposition activists denounce cited by Reuters. They are joined by a dozen people, including a Muslim preacher, who were arrested in the town of Tel Rifaat, midway between Aleppo and the border with Turkey.

The students had gathered on campus to criticize the speech of President Bashar al-Assad, who has promised a "constitutional reform" and the parliamentary elections in August. From the University of Damascus, Assad has reiterated its commitment to the "national dialogue" and also promised new laws on media.

The activists have not given importance to his words, which have actually raised mass concentrations throughout the country. Meanwhile, a neighbor of Aleppo owner of an importing company told Reuters by telephone on Monday there were more checkpoints on the roads of the city, especially on those roads heading for Turkey in the north, and to the east.
