Bishkek: Kyrgyzstan's interim government could use force against ousted President Kurmanbek Bakiyev if he tries to destabilise the country, interim official Omurbek Tekebayev said Sunday on Kyrgyz radio.

"The interim government is prepared to use force in the event that Bakiyev attempts to destabilise the situation," Tekebayev said.

Bakiyev fled the capital Bishkek on Wednesday amid massive protests against his rule. Interim Kyrgyz leader Roza Otunbayeva has accused Bakiyev, who is now located in the south of the country, of attempting to foment civil war.
