A convoy consisting of at least 150 buses staged a protest in the southern Turkish province of Hatay on Thursday, where protesters called for the release of women they claim are imprisoned by the Syrian government.

Labelled 'International Conscience Convoy,' the convoy reportedly included feminist activists from over 50 countries marking International Women's Day.

A statement by the convoy organisers said there are more than 6,700 female prisoners in Syrian prisons.

The convoy started its three-day journey with 55 buses from Istanbul on March 6.
