About 50 to 60 people gathered Sunday afternoon at the Robert F. Stephens Courthouse Plaza in downtown Lexington for a rally to support anti-government rebels in Syria.
People in the crowd chanted, held signs and listened to speakers. The rally was coordinated by the Muslim Student Association at the University of Kentucky.
Meanwhile, Syrian voters were to decide the fate of a new constitution in a Sunday referendum.
Aqsa Qureshi of the Muslim Student Association said the group plans to hold a charity dinner that will raise money to be used for aid to Syria. "We're working on that right now," she said.
