OSH, Kyrgyzstan — Several hundred people have been killed in the riots in Kyrgyzstan, the Red Cross said Tuesday, as new reports strengthened suspicions that the violence was deliberately ignited to undermine the Central Asian nation's interim government.

The International Committee of the Red Cross had no precise figure of the dead, but spokesman Christian Cardon said "we are talking about several hundreds."
