In this photo taken on Tuesday, Aug. 6, 2013, former Azerbaijani police officer Emin Akhmedbekov, 46, second right, poses for a photo with his family in a small village outside Kiev, Ukraine. Left to right are his wife Nigyar, 38, son Rauf, 5, and mother Maisa Guseinova, 75. Akhmedbekov fled to Ukraine, fearing persecution for his numerous lawsuits against Azerbaijani authorities, and hoping to find refuge in one of the freer ex-Soviet republics. Instead, the family found itself holed up in the small village with little hope of getting asylum and terrified of being sent back. (AP Photo/Efrem Lukatsky) less
