"In July 2005 it was reported that residents of the village of Sed’moi Aul, populated “overwhelmingly” by ethnic Kazakhs and located seven kilometres from Turkmenbashi, were forced to resettle to an unknown location. Approximately 3,000 inhabitants lost their homes, and reportedly did not receive any form of compensation (OSI, August 2005, p.15)."
