BISHKEK, June 11 (Xinhua) -- At least 12 people were killed and over 100 others were injured in clashes in southern Kyrgyzstan over night, said an official from the Health Ministry Friday morning.

Earlier on Friday, the Kyrgyzstan interim government declared a state of emergency in the southern city of Osh due to the turmoil there.

Armored vehicles have been sent in to stabilize the situation after hundreds of youths smashed windows, looted shops and set fire to cars in the city.

In mid-May, supporters of the Kyrgyz interim government and those of ousted President Kurmanbek Bakiyev clashed in the southern cities of Osh and Jalalabad, during which tens of people were injured.

Riots broke out on April 6-7 across the Central Asian country, resulting in the ouster of Bakiyev and the formation of an interim government.

At least 85 people were killed and thousands of others injured in clashes between anti-government protestors and security forces of Bakiyev's government.
