Fears over Kyrgyzstan ethnic unrest

Tensions reignite between Kyrgyz and Uzbeks amid political instability after April revolt.

    Fears of more violence are growing in Kyrgyzstan as political instability further splits the population down ethnic lines.

    Since a popular revolt ousted Kurmanbek Bakiyev, the country's former president, in April, old ethnic tensions have been reignited between the Kyrgyz and Uzbeks, sparking deadly clashes between the two groups.

    On Wednesday thousands of Kyrgyz attacked a university, looking for one of the most influential leaders of Kyrgyzstan's Uzbek minority.
