Circus Back in Town

The circus came to town in Turkmenistan for the first time since the Central Asian nation's late leader banned it. Hundreds of children lined up for their first visit to the circus, a form of entertainment that the autocrat Saparmurat Niyazov prohibited as 'alien'.

Nizayov, who ruled Turkmenistan for 21 years, also banned the cinema, opera, ballet, and even gold teeth.
