Kazakhstan: With about 12,000 people arrested after anti-government protests in Kazakhstan last week, friends and relatives of those held by police waited outside a jail Wednesday, hoping to learn their fate.

Some even went to morgues to see if a loved one was among the scores killed in the unprecedented violence in the Central Asian nation.

According to human rights activists, Authorities have refused to allow relatives or lawyers to see those in custody, giving no information about them.
