British tennis players have been driven by armed guard away from trouble spots in Uzbekistan to safety in the capital.
The trouble flared in Andijan, where the players were competing
Richard Bloomfield from Norfolk and Arvind Parmar from Hitchin, Herts, were taking part in a tournament in the city of Andijan where clashes broke out.
Others are: Jamie Delgado (Berks), Dan Kiernan (Cleveland), David Sherwood and Jonny Marray, (both Yorks) and coach James Trotman and referee Carl Baldwin.
Government forces fought with militants on Friday and 200 are reported killed.
The players, coach and referee are being driven to the British Consulate in the capital and they are due to fly back to the UK on Monday.
They had been competing in the Andijan Futures but were caught up in the mass civil unrest in the city in the east of Uzbekistan.
