Olympic torch arrives in Kazakhstan amid tight security

The Olympic torch has arrived in the Central Asian nation of Kazakhstan. President Nursultan Nazarbayev carried it a short distance through Almaty, the commercial capital, on Wednesday. Security has been tight, with thousands of policemen watching out for potential protests by Tibetan activists or those from Kazakhstan's Uighur community. Radio Free Asia has reported that several hundred Uighurs have been taken into custody since demonstrating in Xinjiang on March 23.
