Supporters of former President Almazbek Atambayev bang on the drum during a rally on the central square in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan, Friday, Oct. 9, 2020. Sooronbai Jeenbekov, the embattled president of Kyrgyzstan, has moved to end the political turmoil that followed a disputed parliamentary election, ordering a state of emergency in the capital. Jeenbekov has faced calls to resign by protesters who stormed government buildings after Sunday’s parliamentary vote was reportedly swept by pro-government parties. Protesters freed former President Almazbek Atambayev, who was jailed on charges seen by his supporters as a political vendetta. (AP Photo/Vladimir Voronin)
