BISHKEK, Kyrgyzstan (AP) — Prosecutors in the turbulent Central Asian nation of Kyrgyzstan have charged a nationalist leader with whipping up public unrest in the capital in an unsuccessful coup attempt.
Several hundred supporters of Kambchibek Tashiyev held a rally Friday for a second day in the southern town of Jalal-Abad to demand his release.
Two Tashiyev allies face similar charges over their involvement in unrest Wednesday in Bishkek, the capital, that culminated with a mob trying to seize a building housing parliament and government offices.
Kyrgyzstan, a country of 5 million people on China's mountainous western border, also hosts a U.S. air base used to support military operations in nearby Afghanistan.
