Fergananews.com reported today that the brothers of Alisher Saipov, an Uzbek journalist who was shot and killed in 2007, were beaten in front of their apartment in Bishkek late last night.

At least one brother was seriously injured.

Alisher Saipov, who edited an independent political weekly, was one of few reporters to cover the massacre of hundreds of peaceful protesters in the southern Uzbek city of Andijon in 2005.  Kyrgyz authorities have conducted several probes into his murder that have been widely criticized and remain inconclusive.

Saipov contributed to RFE/RL's Uzbek service.
