Protesters storm government compound in Kyrgyzstan

Protesters stormed the presidential compound in Kyrgyzstan on Thursday, chasing away riot police who had surrounded the building during a large opposition rally and march.

About 1,000 protesters managed to clear riot police from their positions outside the fence protecting the building, but they did not enter the area immediately around the building. Troops were inside the fence, and mounted police arrived to try to scatter the protesters.
