US promises support for Kygryzstan interim government


A senior US State Department official, Robert Blake, has promised his country's support for the interim government that seized power in Kyrgyzstan a week ago.

The interim leader of Kyrgyzstan has said ousted President Kurmanbek Bakiyev should stand trial over the recent deadly political unrest.

Roza Otunbayeva said Mr Bakiyev had "blood on his hands" and had missed his chance to leave the country.
