UPDATE: Thousands Flee Kyrgyz Violence

Thousands of ethnic Uzbeks are reportedly fleeing southern Kyrgyzstan after clashes with rival Kyrgyz gangs left more than 60 people dead and hundreds more injured. The country's interim government has reached out to Russia for help now that it has lost control of the city of Osh, where gun battles and dozens of arson attacks began Friday.

Videos uploaded to YouTube show the aftermath of the attacks, including black smoke rising up from burned buildings all across the city.
