The FCO have updated the travel advice for Kyrgyzstan in relation to possible further demonstrations in Bishkek.

Travel Summary

Large scale demonstrations took place in central Bishkek on 3 October 2012, with demonstrators demanding the nationalisation of Kyrgyzstan’s biggest goldmine.  Reports suggest that police dispersed the crowd using tear gas and people sustained injuries as a result of this action. We advise British nationals in Kyrgyzstan to remain vigilant and to avoid large gatherings or protests. If you become aware that demonstrators are gathering, you should leave the area immediately.
