Survivors of Kyrgyzstan's uprising describe violence

Survivors of Kyrgyzstan's bloody uprising have been describing the violence they witnessed, as the country holds an official day of mourning for the dozens killed.

The first funerals have been held for those who died in the unrest, which forced President Kurmanbek Bakiyev to flee the capital.

Mr Bakiyev has refused to resign but has offered to talk to the opposition, which has set up an interim government.

Rayhan Demytrie has been meeting the injured at the biggest hospital in Bishkek.
