road accidents

"In 2009 the political climate in Kyrgyzstan deteriorated drastically. Not just journalists, but also politicians and commentators critical of the president’s family have been attacked by unknown assailants. In March the bodies of the former chief of Mr Bakiyev’s bureaucratic machine, Medetbek Sadyrkulov, and two other men were found in a burned-out vehicle in a mountain gorge. They were driving home from Almaty. The authorities said it was a road accident."
