Yeni Fikir start hunger strike

From Radio Free Europe:

Five Azerbaijani youth activists today launched a hunger strike in a bid to obtain the release of their jailed leader.

They also demand that an end be put to attacks on opposition supporters in the run-up to the 6 November parliamentary elections.

The protesters belong to Yeni Fikir (New Thinking), a youth movement close to the reformist wing of the Popular Front Party of Azerbaijan (AXCP).
