Kyrgyz police accused of brutality

Right groups say police are carrying out a violent campaign against ethnic Uzbeks.

    Human rights groups have accused Kyrgyz security forces of beating and torturing their own citizens as they hunt for suspects involved in June's deadly unrest.

    Especially ethnic Uzbeks are said to be targeted in the police's violent campaign.

    But local commanders say their men are neither involved in torture, nor defending the Kyrgyz majority.
