More than 100,000 ethnic Uzbeks have fled southern Kyrgyzstan as the military there struggles to regain control following more than a week of ethnic violence.

Checkpoints have been set up in the city of Osh and the violence has also spread to the neighbouring city of Jalal-abad, where Uzbek homes have been destroyed and unconfirmed reports say hundreds of people have been killed.
