The attack came when they were covering the forced dispersion of women who had been protesting against the arrest of their relatives on charges of being Islamist militants. As well as attacking the reporters directly, the thugs encouraged passers-by to follow suit.”The right to inform and be informed is the basis of press freedom, especially on matters affecting human rights such as the forced dispersion of peaceful demonstrators,” Reporters Without Borders secretary-general said in a letter to interior minister Zokirjon Almatov. “It is unacceptable that journalists who were just doing their job were subjected to such violence in the presence of many onlookers and without the police intervening,” Ménard added, calling for an investigation to identify and punish those responsible.According to a report carried by the Uzbek-language service of Radio Free Europe / Radio Liberty, police were present during the attack but did not intervene. One of the assailants said he was acting on orders from the interior ministry. A spokesperson for the interior ministry denied that it was involved in the incident.

JAKARTA, Indonesia (AP) — The coup that removed an elected government and reimposed military control in Myanmar has raised even more uncertainty about a fragile peace process aimed at ending decades of conflict between the military, armed ethnic groups and militias. Over 20 ethnic groups have been fighting the military over control of predominantly ethnic-minority borderland areas. They want more regional autonomy, while the military and militias aligned with it have fought for centralized power. Negotiations spearheaded by Aung San Suu Kyi have brought some progress, though fighting still has continued. Now, the military coup and the detainment of Suu Kyi and other elected officials have sparked criticism and concern the peace process could break down.
