Political activist Mesha'l al-Tammo, who is a member of Syria’s Kurdish minority, has not been seen since the early hours of 15 August 2008, when he set off from the northern city of 'Ein al-'Arab (known in Kurdish as Qobani). He is believed to have been detained by Syrian security police and to be at risk of torture.
