Kazakhstan: Dozens Arrested in Anti-Government Protests

Authorities in Kazakhstan detained at least 57 protesters, Saturday, September 21, including teenagers and the elderly, who were taking part in unsanctioned rallies organized by an opposition movement banned by the government. Videos posted on social media suggested the turnout was small, perhaps a few hundred demonstrators, and police vastly outnumbered those who took part in the rally. Arrests appeared to be indiscriminate. (AP)
