Osh residents fear further violence

Ethnic Uzbeks and Kyrgyz say deadly riots are deliberate attempt to stir up old tensions.

    Dozens of people have been killed and hundreds wounded in clashes between ethnic Kyrgyz and Uzbek, which broke out in the southern city of Osh on Friday.

    The interim government, which took control in April, sent in troops to break up the riots and declared a state of emergency in the city.

    Ethnic Uzbeks and Kyrgyz have lived there side by side for many years, but there are many who believe this latest violence is a deliberate attempt to stir up old tensions between two communities.
