Following the October 4 parliamentary elections in Kyrgyzstan, representatives of parties that failed to pass organized mass riots in Bishkek, captured the buildings of the parliament (where the Presidential Administration is also located), the Bishkek Administration and the Prosecutor General’s Office. The rioters released former president Almazbek Atambayev, former Prime Minister Sapar Isakov and a number of other politicians from prison.
