5,000 in Kurd protest march
Protesters march past the houses of Westminster
Thousands of Kurds have marched through central London in support of Kurdish rebel leader Abdullah Ocalan.
The protest came the day after 79 Kurds appeared in court over the three-day occupation of the Greek Embassy in London.
Police said the demonstration was peaceful with no arrests.
Marchers - police said there were up to 5,400 of them - carried pictures of Mr Ocalan, and waved Kurdish flags and placards bearing slogans such as "Stop arm sales to Turkey" and "Free Ocalan - free Kurdistan".
The girl, Nejla Kanteper, is recovering after undergoing major skin surgery.
Seventy protesters were granted conditional bail and nine were remanded in custody after a four-hour session across four courtrooms.
CPS lawyers eventually applied for only some of the 79 to be kept in custody.
The first to appear, Ali Yesilakaya, was accused of using "threats of unlawful violence" between 16 and 18 February at the embassy in Holland Park, west London.
Mr Yesilakaya was granted conditional bail and told to return to the court on 26 February.
Those released left the court to cheers from about 100 supporters outside.
