Police in Azerbaijan detained scores of protesters, Saturday, October 19, including the leader of the main opposition Popular Front, at the start of a planned rally against low salaries, corruption and a lack of democracy in the energy-rich ex-Soviet state.
The protesters have a wide range of demands, including higher salaries for state employees, and fair and independent elections in a country long accused by human rights groups and Western governments of a lack of transparency.
The deputy head of the Baku police confirmed that some people had been detained, but declined to provide a number. (Reuters)
