Kazakhstan's opposition leaders attend a protest in Almaty, January 17, 2012. Kazakh President Nursultan Nazarbayev described his victory in a weekend election as an endorsement of national unity after unrest by oil workers cast a shadow over a vote that Western monitors said had excluded any genuine opposition.
