39 killed, nearly 600 wounded in Kyrgyz rioting

Mobs of armed men torched Uzbek neighborhoods in southern Kyrgyzstan on Friday in ethnic clashes that officials said left at least 39 people dead and nearly 600 wounded. A state of emergency was declared in the Central Asian nation that hosts US and Russian military bases.


The rioting in Osh, the country's second-largest city, is the heaviest violence since former President Kurmanbek Bakiyev was toppled in a bloody uprising in April and fled the country. (AP)
