BISHKEK, Kyrgyzstan – The ousted president of Kyrgyzstan has been charged with organizing mass killings in the deadly uprising that forced him from office in this Central Asian country earlier this month, the leader of the interim authorities said Tuesday.

Kurmanbek Bakiyev, who is in exile in Belarus, will have his presidential immunity stripped to face the Kyrgyz charges, which also include abuse of power, said Azimbek Beknazarov, a vice-premier of the opposition forces that claimed provisional control of the country.

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.

I wonder what the new people in charge are going to do to the ex-president. Kyrgyzstan seems to be calmer in the past few days, as I have not heard anything violent.

Hopefully their new goverment will lead them in the right direction and not fall under a courrupt system once again. If they do everything right, they could become a top nation. Just have to wait and see, and it will more than likely take a long time to re-work the country.
