Terrified Uzbeks Flee Ethnic Violence

Video posted to YouTube today shows thousands of ethnic Uzbeks trying to escape Kyrgyzstan and enter Uzbekistan. As many as 100,000 Uzbeks have abandoned their homes in Osh, Jalalabad and other cities in southern Kyrgyzstan where mobs have been killing people and setting homes on fire. Officially, at least 170 people have been killed, but some reports estimate the death toll may exceed 1,000.
