Kyrgyz interim leaders reject talks with deposed president

The interim government of Kyrgyzstan on Tuesday ruled out talks with the "bloody dictator" they deposed in violent protests last week, reported Kyrgyz media, DPA reported.

Deposed President Kurmanbek Bakiyev, who fled to a family stronghold in southern Kyrgyzstan as the violence overwhelmed the capital, Bishkek, has volunteered to give up power in exchange for his family's safety.

The interim government had initially offered Bakiyev immunity, but that was revoked when he failed to return to Bishkek by Tuesday.

Arrest warrants are also outstanding for Bakiyev's father and brother, who have been charged with complicity in at least some of the 83 deaths that resulted in last week's violence.
