Four injured in Kyrgyz protest

From Voice of America:

Police in southern Kyrgyzstan say a clash between protesters and security guards outside a hotel in the city of Osh has injured four people.

Local authorities say security guards fired at the demonstrators with automatic weapons to disperse them. The hotel is believed to be owned by prominent politician, Bayaman Erkinbayev, who survived an attempt on his life by unknown assailants six weeks ago.

Monday's clash in Osh follows a similar incident at a market place in the border town of Kara-Suu Thursday, which Mr. Erkinbayev says belongs to his wife.
