Uzbeks in Kyrgyzstan cry foul

Security forces accused of intimidation, a year after ethnic violence left hundreds dead.


    A year after violence between rival ethnic groups left hundreds dead, tensions continue to run high in Kyrgyzstan amid allegations that security forces in the south are unfairly targeting minority Uzbeks.

    Rights groups back up claims of a campaign of intimidation, but Kyrgz security forces refute the allegations.
