Journalists’ attacks in Kyrgyzstan shock international community

Number of attacked in Kyrgyzstan journalists shocks as our citizens so the international community, Asiya Sasykbaeva human rights activist said Saturday, meeting with representatives of mass media and civil society, news agency "24.kg" reported.

As to Sasykbaeva, regional journalists are under heavy pressure at the time, while Bishkek mass media undergo strict censorship. The human rights activist outlined, that local TV channels practically did not cover negative events in Kyrgyzstan but "broadcast all the negative in other countries."

"Pro-government mass media told about death of Gennady Pavlyuk when there was nothing for them to do. There is too much obvious in their negligence," she added.
