Spring Break Kazakhstan (2 of 2)

More than 100 volunteers working in the U.S. Peace Corps in Kazakhstan left the country.

The move comes after an announcement of the Peace Corps more than a week, in the sense that it was suspending its activities in Kazakhstan, where he worked for 18 years.

No specific reason was given, but reports suggest that sexual assaults against volunteers and security threats caused the decision.

The authorities of the country, rich in oil, say they no longer need the help of volunteers.

Critics say the government of Kazakhstan has a poor human rights record and have done little to promote democracy.
