The continuing saga of Bakiyev
Ousted Kyrgyzstan leader Kurmanbek Bakiyev has said he does not intend to return home to rule as president.
But Mr Bakiyev said he no longer recognised his resignation, as the interim leaders had broken the terms under which he stood down.
He remains in Minsk. And in an interesting turn of events, Russia seems to have thrown its lot in with Kyrgyzstan:
Russian forces have detained the former Kyrgyz interior minister and returned him to the Central Asian nation, the interim Kyrgyz government said.
Moldomusa Kongantiyev was held in Moscow and is now in custody in Bishkek, a senior Kyrgyz official said. Mr Kongantiyev served under Kurmanbek Bakiyev, who was ousted in bloody protests two weeks ago. Officials said he was being investigated for his role in the violence on 7 April.
The political drama continues to unfold.
