    Islam Karimov, the President of Uzbekistan, has just been confirmed dead. He suffered a stroke on 29th August 2016 and was taken into intensive care but died today.

    It's not clear who his successor is but Uzbekistan is a dictatorship so the next leader will be chosen from the same party.

    I doubt many people are sorry he's dead, an awful man by all accounts. A large minority of Uzbeks are ethnic Russians, and at least half the country speaks the Russian language (which in Putin's minds makes them Russian), so it will be interesting to see if a politically weakened Uzbekistan is pulled further under the thumb of Moscow.

    10/10 guy will be missed RIP.
