Thousands of refugees are said to have massed near the closed Kyrgyz-Uzbek border unable to flee from Kyrgyzstan wracked by ethnic violence. The official death toll has risen to 171 and tens of thousands have already left the troubled country. More and more sporadic fighting has been registered over the last 24 hours. Shoot-to-kill orders remain in place, along with a state of emergency in the southern cities of Osh and Dzhalal-Abad.
