Imprisoned Kyrgyz opposition leader Felix Kulov was freed on Thursday as protesters took control of key government facilities, the Interfax news agency cited opposition sources as saying.
Kulov, once a vice president under embattled President Askar Akayev, was imprisoned in 2000 under embezzlement charges that supporters said were politically motivated. His release could be a key element in unifying the Kyrgyz opposition, which until now has lacked a single clear leader.
