Individuals should never be imprisoned for peaceful activism. I urge Central Asian leaders to release prisoners held for these legitimate acts, including cases across #Kazakhstan, #Kyrgyzstan, #Tajikistan, #Turkmenistan & #Uzbekistan. The #COVID19 prison risk raises the stakes.
Aset Abishev was arrested in Kazakhstan for posts in support of Democratic Choice of Kazakhstan movement. @freedomhouse cited his case as an example of Kazakhstan persecuting opposition parties. He has been punished for expressing concerns about prison conditions & #COVID19.
Maks Bokayev was arrested in Kazakhstan for his work fighting for the environment, expression & against torture. The UN Working Group on Arbitrary Detention said his detention was based on his exercise of “freedom of expression & freedom of assembly.” He’s at high #COVID19 risk.

Let’s talk #Sogdian fashion.

We’ll work backwards from the 8th Century.

This is a big topic, so it’ll be multiple threads. We’ll start with men’s clothing, because that’s what I wear myself.

Men’s clothing essentially consisted of trousers, tunics, coats, and boots - the same sort of stuff worn across Eurasia at the time.

All these items had a long history behind them, starting among the nomads centuries ago. Add a belt and jewellery and you’re good to go!

~NA
Sogdian tunics were long, extending below the knee, and had decorated collars, cuffs, hems, and strips running down the shoulders, usually made with pattern woven silk. They were fastened with a button on the shoulder, a fashion that stems from Han Dynasty China. ~NA

It is time for one long #Coronavirus update. I have been resisting doing this as (1) I do not want to add to the hysteria & the panic & (2) I don't believe in doomsday predictions. Moreover, things have been moving so fast, who knows what's what. BUT it's time for real talk...
Overall, #Coronavirus (the outbreak of #COVID19) is REAL. The effects on your daily life from the fallout will be REAL. The impact society, economics, & politics in 2020 will be severe & REAL. None of this is Fake News. None of this should be downplayed. (2/
People who are trying to silence REAL discussion are doing a disservice to the public interest. This is a 9/11 & 2008 level event in terms of its impact on domestic & international dynamics. This thread is not about creating panic but encouraging a smarter response. (3/

It's noon and here's the scene in the UN Press Briefing Room from which Inner City Press is banned by @AntonioGuterres' @UN_Spokesperson @StephDujarric and @MelissaFleming. It submitted Qs at 9 am, including on #Cameroon scam; no answers yet - thread
@antonioguterres @UN_Spokesperson @StephDujarric @MelissaFleming @MatthewLeeICP @FUNCA_info @silas_atefor @AdamShawNY @simonateba @allimadi Banned Inner City Press has asked: On #Cameroon, since Biya's speech which SG Guterres praised reiterated threats to crush "separatists" & denied any marginalization has taken place, while leaders have been given life sentences, what is the meaning of his praise?
@antonioguterres @UN_Spokesperson @StephDujarric @MelissaFleming @MatthewLeeICP @FUNCA_info @silas_atefor @AdamShawNY @simonateba @allimadi @NeverAgainGC @Beatriceijang @NjobehPatrick @eatanyi @cameroonvoice @cameroondailyjo @CameroonC ...what is the meaning of Guterres' praise? Who worked on this statement - Francois Lonceny Fall? Rosemary DiCarlo? Had the Biya regime given the UN any heads-up? And again, where is the if-asked information about the #Cameroon UN peacekeepers child rape in #DRC?

#OrmaraMassacre in #Balochistan & #Iran's role in terrorism in #Pakistan, in pursuance of a joint strategic project with #India. /1

#Thread by #AhmedQuraishi
Two days before the emergence of #Iran's role in #Ormara attack, #Karachi police busted an #Iranian terror cell assigned to destabilize #Pakistan's business hub. /2
@AQpk

The busting of #Iran-backed #Karachi cell & role in #Ormara attack shows #Tehran has not stopped its anti-#Pakistan activities after the busting of #ChabaharTerrorNetwork, a joint project with #India, in 2015. /3

Local authorities in #Pakistan are not doing a good job protecting #Pakistani #Hazara population in #Quetta #Balochistan but the complex geopolitics involved in this story are terrifying. /1

There is a compelling case for categorizing attacks on #Hazara as acts of terrorism & war, not only sectarianism. #Pakistani Hazara & the State are embroiled in a complex situation that demands recognition & full disclosure. /2

#Pakistan law enforcement has eliminated key anti-#Shia extremist #Sunni militants in #Balochistan+#Punjab since 2015, & worked with #US & #Afghanistan to close #LeJ/#TTP/#BLA terror camps (involved in sectarian killings as part of a wider anti-Pak war)./3
