Kyrgyzstan - Ethnic Uzbeks pray in Bishkek, 25Jun2010 - Ethnic Uzbeks pray in Bishkek June 25, 2010. Nearly 2,000 soldiers filed into polling booths on Friday in Osh, epicentre of the bloodshed, two days before the main round of voting which the interim government hopes will cement its rule of the poor but strategic country. The interim government, which assumed power after a popular revolt in April overthrew the president, says the plebiscite is crucial to restoring order in the south of the country after the violence between ethnic Kyrgyz and Uzbeks.
