Uzbeks in Kyrgyzstan fear new communal riots

Four years after clashes left hundreds dead, Uzbeks fear marginalisation will stoke further violence.

    Four years after communal clashes in Kyrgyzstan left hundreds dead, human rights groups say ethnic Uzbeks continue to be marginalised.

    Human Rights Watch says a biased legal system has resulted in long sentences for Uzbeks alleged to have been involved in the fighting, with reports of confessions extracted from defendants under torture.
