Kyrgyzstan Death toll grows as Kyrgyzstan ethnic violence escalates

Mobs of Kyrgyz men rampaged through southern Kyrgyzstan today, slaughtering ethnic Uzbeks and burning down houses in a third day of ethnic bloodshed.

The country's interim government granted its security forces shoot-to-kill powers and promised to send a volunteer force to the region – but the violence continued to rage, taking the death toll since Thursday night to more than 100.

Opponents of the new government said it had failed to impose political stability, and was letting the country drift towards civil war.
