Uzbek Man Sets Fire To Himself To Save Home


An Uzbek teacher set himself alight and leaped from the roof of his home, in protest at plans by the authorities to demolish it. The authorities in the Tortkol region in the Karakalpakstan autonomous region of western Uzbekistan say around 500 houses were built illegally and must be bulldozed. (UGC/RFE/RL's Uzbek Service)
