The day in pictures

Syrian-Kurdish women model traditional Kurdish attire during a fashion show in the northeastern Syrian city of Qamishli on March 10, 2017, which coincides with the Day of Kurdish Clothing.
Such outfits would not have been seen in public in Syria’s Kurdish regions in years past, under restrictions on the minority that also banned their language and denied them Syrian nationality. But after Syria’s uprising began in March 2011, the government first relaxed some restrictions and then in 2012 withdrew most of its forces from Kurdish-majority areas in the country’s north.
