On January 6, residents of the Sokh district, an Uzbek exclave located within Kyrgyzstan and populated by ethnic Tajiks, clashed with guards at a Kyrgyz border post and briefly took dozens of Kyrgyz hostage. The tensions have died down, but the Kyrgyz residents of the region say the disputed border makes incidents like this one all too common. (RFE/RL's Kyrgyz Service)
