Latest update : 2010-04-15

Kyrgyzstan's ousted president, Kurmanbek Bakiyev, has arrived in the city of Taraz, in neighbouring Kazakhstan, after fleeing his country in the wake of last week's violent uprising.

AFP - Ousted Kyrgyz president Kurmanbek Bakiyev on Thursday landed in the southern Kazakhstan city of Taraz after flying out of Kyrgyzstan, a Kazakh foreign ministry spokesman said.

"Yes, he is in Taraz, he has just arrived," Ilias Omarov, spokesman for the Kazakh foreign ministry, told AFP.

Bakiyev, ousted in deadly protests one week ago, had left the southern Kyrgyzstan city of Jalalabad by plane in a departure arranged by world powers including Russia and the United States.
