Kyrgyzstan violence spreads

Deadly ethnic unrest hits southern city of Jalalabad.

    More than 100,000 ethnic Uzbeks have fled southern Kyrgyzstan as the military there struggles to regain control following more than a week of ethnic violence.

    Checkpoints have been set up in the city of Osh and the violence has also spread to the neighbouring city of Jalal-abad, where Uzbek homes have been destroyed and unconfirmed reports say hundreds of people have been killed.
