Kyrgyzstan state of emergency declared

When Kyrgyzstan got into turmoil this week, a state of emergency was declared in its capital on Friday and an assassination attempt on its former president failed.
President Sooronbai Jeenbekov has ordered the military to end the days of unrest as supporters of rival opposition groups fought in the streets.
A Reuters witness said they heard gunfire and saw demonstrators throw stones and bottles at each other.
Kyrgyz leaders say the state of emergency would include tough security restrictions and a curfew that will last until October 21.
The president had previously said he was ready to step down as soon as a new cabinet was appointed.
President Jeenbekov said earlier this week:
"I have personal conversations with various political parties. Dear political leaders, as President, I am ready to do everything in my power to find a way out of this political impasse."
A former President Almazbek Atambayev reportedly survived an attack on Friday.
Russia's RIA news agency said his car was shot at.
He had been to a rally in Bishkek earlier that day.
Kyrgyzstan has seen a power vacuum since Sunday's elections were condemned as fraudulent by opposition parties.
But the opposition is not unified. The groups argue among themselves over the seizure of government buildings and forcing the cancellation of Sunday's results.
Russia has described the situation in Kyrgyzstan, which borders China and houses a Russian military base, as "chaos".
