In post-revolution Kyrgyzstan, restoring law and order has provided the biggest challenge for its country's new interim authorities.

On 19 April, almost two weeks after the anti-government protests, an angry mob numbering in their thousands overran the village of Mayevka.

Five people were killed and several homes were destroyed.

Most of the houses belonged to Meskhetian Turks - originally from Georgia they were deported to Central Asia by Joseph Stalin in 1944.

Djalyali Agaziyev's home was the first to be attacked.
