Soros Under Siege

Philanthropist George Soros is under siege in Central Asia, where Kyrgyzstan's state media have accused him of seeking to instigate a revolution. Central Asia's dictators have become rather paranoid since the recent Orange Revolution in Ukraine - Uzbekistan's Islam Karimov, for example, has threatened to suspend cooperation with a group which includes Georgia and Ukraine due to their recent democratic developments. Soros's organization has also recently come under pressure in Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, and Tajikistan.
