Hundreds of people gathered in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan's capital, to mourn the scores of people killed during clashes between protesters and police that led to opposition leaders seizing power.

Many of the city's residents are bitter following the violence, which they blame on the president's attempts to stay in power.
