Kyrgyzstan president now in jail

MOSCOW: Police in Kyrgyzstan detained the Central Asian nation’s ex-president following violent clashes with his supporters, a day after a previous attempt to arrest him left one policeman dead and nearly 80 people injured. Kyrgyzstan’s first two presidents after independence were both driven from office by riots. Almazbek Atambayev, president from 2011 to 2017, accused his successor and protégé Sooronbai Jeenbekov of fabricating false criminal charges against him to stifle criticism.
