The capital of Kyrgyzstan saw mass protests after the preliminary results of Sunday’s parliamentary election, supporting the parties that failed to qualify and demanding a re-vote.

Protesters in Bishkek have broken into an area of the White House where the parliament and the presidential administration of Kyrgyzstan are situated, according to a Sputnik correspondent.

Protesters supporting the parties that did not make it into parliament rammed the gate with a truck and then rushed inside.

According to witnesses, a convoy of cars left the parliament building a few minutes before the incident. When the protesters arrived, there were no officials or guards inside the building.

The caption says: “The protesters entered the White House. The son of former President Almazbek Atambayev, Kadyr Atambayev, was taken into the building”.
