The Damages

According to the local television news the toll for 7-8 April 2010 in Bishkek is 79 dead and 75 destroyed businesses. Almost all of the big and medium grocery stores got completely looted. A number of them were foreign owned. For instance the Vefa Center near me with its new Beta Store anchor was owned by Turkish investors.

Thank you for the update. I have been wondering how you and your family were coping with the "unrest" -- is there a better word.
Thank you for joining the GRHS Heritage Review Editorial Review Board.
