Uzbekistan denies killing refugee

From Interfax:

The Uzbek Prosecutor General's Office on Saturday denied a report that one of the four men who fled to Kyrgyzstan after May's riots in the Uzbek city of Andizhan but have later come back to Uzbekistan died under torture.

All four "are charged with direct participation in the attacks on the buildings of the regional administration and law and order [agencies] and on a military base, with killing hostages and civilians, and with hijacking cars," Svetlana Artykova, spokeswoman for the office, told Interfax.

She said the four former refugees were currently in preventive detention.
