Kyrgyzstan's interim government appealed for Russian intervention on Saturday to stop an outbreak of ethnic violence between the country's Kyrgyz and Uzbek communities that has killed scores of people in the second-largest city of Osh.
Things are getting worse and worse by the hour. We hear reports of tens of thousands of people fleeing the fighting and looting, and heading towards the Kyrgyz border with Uzbekistan.
