Azerbaijan rally rights

Azerbaijani police officers detain opposition activists taking part in an unauthorized anti-government protest in central Baku, in June, 2011. Rights groups are asking the Azerbaijani government to cease these repressive tactics, including jailing journalists who are critical of the government, ahead of a UN-sponsored summit this week.
