Kyrgyzstan's President on 'overthrow'

Kyrgyzstan's President Kurmanbek Bakiyev has offered to hold talks with what he called the temporary government that has replaced his administration.

But Mr Bakiyev, who was forced to flee the capital Bishkek amid a bloody uprising, insisted he will not resign.

In a telephone interview with the BBC, Mr Bakiyev described his apparent 'overthrow' as "a terrifying feeling".
