OSH (Kyrgyzstan) (AFP) Uzbekistan ordered Monday its frontier closed to an exodus of refugees fleeing deadly violence in Kyrgyzstan where government forces were accused of helping gangs slaughter ethnic Uzbeks. Bodies littered the streets of the southern Kyrgyzstan city of Osh where fresh gunfire rang out, and more fighting was reported in the nearby city of Jalalabad. Scores are reported killed in four days of clashes. With estimates of up to 100,000 people already inside Uzbekistan, the Central Asian states Deputy Prime Minister Abdullah Aripov said the border would be shut, despite pleas from aid groups and the UN to leave it open. Today we will stop accepting refugees from the Kyrgyz side because we have no place to accommodate them and no capacity to cope with them, he said. He said Uzbekistan needs international humanitarian aid to cope. If we have the ability to help them and to treat them of course we will open the border again, he added. Aripov said Uzbekistan had registered 45,000 adults from Kyrgyzstan, while another official said there were 65,000 adults in Uzbekistans Andijan region alone and the UNs refugee agency said it was sending aid for 75,000. Ethnic Uzbeks and Tajiks have flooded into Uzbekistan in the four days of bloodshed around Osh and Jalalabad which has left at least 124 dead and 1,685 wounded, the health ministry said. The violence exploded Friday in Osh when ethnic Kyrgyz gangs began attacking shops and homes of ethnic Uzbeks, igniting tensions between the two dominant groups in the region that have simmered for a generation. Ethnic Uzbeks said many more had been killed and accused government forces of helping Kyrgyz mobs in their deadly rampage. Charred corpses lay unattended in a burned out ethnic Uzbek shop in Osh and the streets were strewn with shell cases and wrecked cars. A military helicopter flew over the city dropping leaflets calling for calm. But intermittent gunfire was heard while new violence was reported further north in Jalalabad. Kyrgyz news agency AKIPress said 2,000 people had gathered in the main square in Jalalabad and that cafes and stores were ablaze. It also said 150 to 200 youths were marching around threatening to shoot Uzbeks. In Osh, Uzbek men with makeshift weapons stood guard outside their homes while women and children cowered in basements. Dildor Dzhumabayev, a 38-year-old ethnic Uzbek, said people were gunned down by armed personnel carriers that were used to clear the way for mobs on the streets. There are at least 1,000 dead here in Osh. We have not been able to register them because they turn us away at the hospital and say it is only for Kyrgyz, Isamidin Kudbidunov, 27, told AFP. A senior Russian official was quoted as saying on Monday that a Russian-led security group does not rule out military intervention in Kyrgyzstan to bring ethnic violence there under control. An emergency meeting of the Collective Security Treaty Organisation did not rule out use of any means at the disposal of the CSTO to help quell the unrest, said Nikolai Patrushev, former head of the FSB security service. CSTO member countries, which include Kyrgyzstan and a handful of other ex-Soviet republics, were working on a coordinated response which we hope will be ready soon, Patrushev said in comments shown on Russian television. His remarks came as CSTO representatives held an emergency meeting in Moscow called by Russian President Dmitry Medvedev.
