Kyrgyz troops accused of partiality

Ethnic Uzbeks say soldiers fail to be impartial in unrest, as thousands flee violence.

    Three days of unrest between Kyrgyz and ethnic Uzbeks has left at least 114 people dead and 1,400 others injured in southern Kyrgyzstan.

    The violence has prompted ethnic Uzbeks to flee across the border to Uzbekistan, where an estimated 80,000 of them are being housed in camps.

    Kyrgyzstan's interim government has mobilised security forces to calm the unrest.

    But as Al Jazeera's Robin Forestier-Walker reports from the Kyrgyz-Uzbek border, some of Kyrgyzstan's troops seem to be taking sides.
