BISHKEK, Kyrgyzstan — The deposed president of Kyrgyzstan on Monday left Kazakhstan, ending four days of refuge in the country after he was driven from power in a violent uprising, a Kazakh official said.

Kazakh Foreign Ministry spokesman Ilyas Omarov told The Associated Press he didn't know where Bakiyev was headed.

"He's left Kazakhstan — there are no details on his planned destination," Omarov said by telephone from the Kazakh capital, Astana.

The authoritarian leader of Belarus, Alexander Lukashenko, said Sunday that Bakiyev would be welcome in his country. Another possible destination is the United Arab Emirates, where Bakiyev is thought to own property.
