Ousted Kyrgyz President charged with mass killing

A leader of the interim authorities in Kyrgyzstan says the ousted president of the Central Asian country has been charged with organizing mass killing.



Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan: A leader of the interim authorities in Kyrgyzstan says the ousted President of the Central Asian country has been charged with organizing mass killing.
Kurmanbek Bakiyev fled the capital on April 7 after security forces fired on protesters and the demonstrators stormed government buildings. At least 85 people died in the violence.

Bakiyev tried to rally support in his home region in Kyrgyzstan`s south, but eventually fled the country and surfaced last week in Belarus.

Azimbek Beknazarov, a vice-premier of the opposition forces that claimed provisional control of the country, told a news conference Tuesday that Bakiyev also has been charged with abuse of power and that his presidential immunity will be stripped.
