Roza Otunbayeva talks to Al Jazeera

The self-declared leader of Kyrgyzstan calls for the president's resignation.

    In an exclusive interview with Al Jazeera, Roza Otunbayeva, the self-declared leader of Kyrgyzstan's interim government, called on the country's president to resign.

    She said that life under Kurmanbek Bakiyev, who has fled the capital in the aftermath of violent anti-government protests, had been "unbearable".

    Otunbayeva also told Al Jazeera that the interim government was "pretty much in control of the whole country", but warned that there could be more violence if Bakiyev stays in office.
