Kurds and Londoners gather to protest Turkish invasion of northern Syria

Kurds and Londoners alike gathered to protest the Turkish invasion of northern Syria in London.

Video shows protesters shouting in unison, "The Turkish state is fascist!" The Turkish assault on Syrian Democratic Forces-held territory is now in its fifth day.

Around 130,000 people have fled their homes, says the UN, and it warns the figure could rise further.

More than 50 civilians have reportedly died on both sides of the border.

Turkey accuses the Kurds of being terrorists and says it wants to drive them away from a "safe zone" reaching some 30km into Syria.
