Jubilant Kyrgyzstan opposition supporters occupy the looted cabinet room of President Kurmanbek Bakiyev in the capital Bishkek following Wednesday's bloody revolt.
Government buildings have been taken over and opposition leaders say they have dissolved parliament, forming an interim government.
In Bishkek, the government's headquarters were stormed and ransacked. At least 75 people were reported killed.
Hundreds of people were also injured in Wednesday's violence.
Opposition leader Roza Otunbayeva, an ex-foreign minister, says the interim government is fully in control.
Bishkek is reported to be calm with no sign of police on the streets.
President Bakiyev is in the south of the country and has said he will not leave.
The UN Secretary General, Ban Ki-moon, says he is sending a special envoy to the country in the wake of the bloodshed.
The violence that overwhelmed Bishkek and other towns and cities led to widespread looting.
Shopkeepers have been left with a huge clear-up operation.
