Protests continue into their second day in Azerbaijan.  Azerbaijan has been ruled by one family since the fall of the Soviet Union: Heydar Aliyev came into power in 1993 and handed it off to his son, Ilham, in 2003.  Yesterday, the Interior Ministry stated that it had arrested 43 protesters, 23 of which were released after questioning. The protests are being organised, unsurprisingly, via social media sites and much of the impetus comes from the opposition party Musavat.  Read more at Reuters and RFE/RL.
