BISHKEK, Kyrgyzstan (AP) — A court in Kyrgyzstan has found three nationalist opposition lawmakers guilty of attempting to violently overthrow the government.
The three were arrested in October after protesters clashed with police and tried to break into a building housing the parliament and government offices in Kyrgyzstan's capital.
Prosecutors had asked for sentences of up to 10 years in prison. But the judge on Friday sentenced nationalist leader Kamchibek Tashiyev and one other defendant to 18 months in prison, while the third defendant received a one-year sentence.
About 400 of Tashiyev's supporters rallied outside the courthouse calling for him to be freed. He heads a nationalist movement that has a substantial following in the south of the Central Asian nation, which was the scene of deadly ethnic clashes in 2010.
