The Big Picture has an awesome group of photos as usual.  This particular set about the Crisis in Kyrgyzstan.  If you’re as geographically inept as I am, Kyrgyzstan is a country in central Asia, west of China.

Widespread anti-government protests in Kyrgyzstan recently turned violent, with groups of opposition protesters attempting to storm some government buildings, and clashing with riot police. Tensions are high, as Kyrgyz authorities declared a national state of emergency, and are enforcing curfews in at least three cities. As riot police fired on opposition members and protesters fought with stones and captured weapons, estimates of casualties have varied widely, with reports ranging from 12 killed to over 100 killed.

The rifle in the picture above appears to be a Dragunov

Looks like the protesters are doing plenty of damage, even by just throwing things and lighting fires.
