Project aims to heal Kyrgyzstan's ethnic rift

A year on from violence, 'Friendship House' hopes to reconcile Uzbeks and Kyrgyz.



    Friday marks the first anniversary of the inter-ethnic violence in southern Kyrgyzstan which killed nearly 500 people.

    Clashes between ethnic Kyrgyz and Uzbeks left thousands of homes destroyed and tens of thousands of people displaced.
