TASHKENT, June 21 (Xinhua) -- A plane carrying humanitarian aid from China to Kyrgyz refugees landed here early on Monday morning.

The 22 tons of aid include food, clothes, sanitary materials, small power generators, mobile shower booths and medicines.

The aid will be transported to border areas where Kyrgyz refugees, who have fled violence in their country, are sheltering.

Chinese ambassador to Uzbekistan Yu Hongjun said at the airport that he hoped the aid would help ease pressure on Uzbek authorities who are making efforts to resettle the refugees.

Figures from the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs showed that an estimated 100,000 refugees had fled to neighboring Uzbekistan, and 300,000 others were still seeking aid within Kyrgyzstan.
