Special Report: Unrest in Kyrgyzstan |

The General Prosecutor under Kyrgyzstan's interim government says it has opened a criminal case against three relatives of the country's ousted President, Kurmanbek Bakiyev.

The General Prosecutor says they have testimonial evidence that shootings of civilians took place under the orders of three of Bakiyev's relatives. At least 80 people died and more than four-hundred were wounded in riots between anti-government protesters and authorities on April 7th. The massive unrest toppled the government and forced President Bakiyev to flee the capital.
