BISHKEK, Kyrgyzstan — Kyrgyzstan's interim president asked her Russian counterpart Saturday to send troops to quell ethnic violence that has killed more than 50 people and wounded about 700.

Roza Otunbayeva said that without outside help the provisional authorities can't end violence that has raged since Friday in the southern city of Osh.

She sent a letter to Russian president Dmitry Medvedev asking him to send in military forces. There has been no response from Russia yet.
