On March 10, demonstrators in Jalalabad, Kyrgyzstan took an editor and cameraman from Kyrgyz state television hostage, complaining that their reporting of events in this southern region had been biased. A further four state TV cameramen who arrived from Bishkek were taken to the protestors’ headquarters. A day later, state television reported that all six journalists had been set free by police after three hours in captivity.
The second round of the Kyrgyzstan Parliament elections is now under way. The Turkish Weekly has a great roundup of events.
