Kyrgyz Christian's Body Buried Three Times Amid Religious Tension

A grieving widower in Kyrgyzstan has been forced to bury his Christian wife three times amid religious tensions over her Baptist faith. Kanygul Satybaldieva passed away on October 13, but locals protested when she was buried in a Muslim and Russian Orthodox cemetery. Faced with the indignity of repeatedly exhuming the body, the family struggled for nearly a week to find a final resting place. (RFE/RL's Kyrgyz Service)
