Kazakh police break up anti-government protests

Kazakh police have broken up anti-government protests detaining dozens of protesters and cordoning off the main squares of major cities.

Opponents of President Nursultan Nazarbayev, in power since 1989, had called for rallies in all major cities, in response to plans to privatise large tracts of farmland.
