Uzbekistan Human Rights Abuses



Human Rights Watch has released a new report about Uzbekistan and how the government has cracked down on those who have tried to expose its human rights violations that occurred after a prison break and anti-government protest in May. You can read the full Washington Post article by clicking here. In addition, another Post article reports that despite congressional objections "...the Pentagon intends to pay Uzbekistan almost $23 million for past use of its military base from which U.S. forces were recently told to leave." The article can be found here.
