Aksy
Kerben (Kyrgyz: Кербен, older name Karavan) is a town in Jalal-Abad Region
Jalal-Abad Region
of Kyrgyzstan. Its population was 14,141 in 2009.[1] It is the administrative centre of Aksy District. Despite the fact that the town officially was founded in the early 1920s, medieval Persian historiographers noted in their works a caravanserai, or fortified “hotel” for merchants and travelers, in a place very close to today's Kerben. Archaeological excavations carried out by A. Bernshtam corroborated that records. Kerben gained notoriety in 2002 when police fired into a crowd of unarmed demonstrators, killing six. The demonstrations were triggered by a political dispute between a local member of the national parliament, Azimbek Beknazarov, and Kyrgyz President Askar Akayev
