Yes, there have been violent protests in the wake of an election whose outcome did not satisfy democrats in Mongolia. 5 people were killed, and the city is on curfew. My friends in Mongolia and I are all okay. I actually was not in Mongolia for any of it--I'm at WALTIC in Stockholm. I do agree, however, that's it's less an unraveling than a bump in the long road to democracy for the first country in central Asia to approximate it.
