Kyrgyzstan has entered its fifth night of violence in the deadliest ethnic violence to hit the Central Asian nation in 20 years.

Calls are growing louder for urgent action in Kyrgyzstan and the country's interim government has admitted they are struggling to cope with the crisis.

Dmitry Medvedev, Russia's president, says the situation has become extremely dangerous and has turned into a "regional emergency".

The official death toll stands at 124, but that is a conservative estimate and could turn out to be much higher.

Al Jazeera's Clayton Swisher reports from the Kyrgyz capital of Bishkek on how army reservists are now being called into action.
