Kyrgyz government 'relocating'

President Kurmanbek Bakiyev leaves the capital after opposition leaders claim control.



    Opposition leaders in Kyrgyzstan say they have formed a new acting government in the country, after a day in which at least 40 anti-government protesters were killed in clashes with police.

    The opposition announced on Wednesday that it is now in control of the capital Bishkek, after storming government ministries and seizing a state television channel.

    Al Jazeera's Robin Forestier-Walker, reporting from Bishkek, said Kurmanbek Bakiyev, the country's president, has now fled the capital and relocated to the country's south.
