UZBEKISTAN-LIFESTYLE-POLITICS-MEDIA

(FILES) A picture taken on August 17, 2012 shows Gulnara Karimova, the eldest daughter of Uzbekistan's president Islam Karimov, as she speaks during a press conference at her foundationís summer camp for young Uzbek journalists with trainers invited from Europe in the town of Chirchik, outside the Uzbek capital near Tashkent. An outburst on Twitter has exposed the extraordinary rift at the heart of Uzbekistanís ruling family and the sudden fall from grace of the once all powerful first daughter Gulnara Karimova. Until this autumn, little information seeped out over splits within the elite of the tightly-controlled nation which has been run by Gulnaraís father, President Islam Karimov, since before the fall of the Soviet Union.
