The deputy Prime Minister of Kyrgyzstan's interim government has called on the US to help extradite the son of deposed president Kurmanbek Bakiyev.

Azimbek Beknazarov said if the US refuses to help, the interim government could order US troops to pull out of Kyrgyzstan.

The interim government has accused Maxim Bakiyev of instigating recent riots in Kyrgyzstan that killed nearly 200 people.

prosecutors allege that a company owned by Maxim avoided almost 80 million US dollars in taxes on aviation fuel sold to suppliers of the US air base near Bishkek.

Azimbek said US should help extradite Maxim from Britain, as it is in line with US policy on fighting terrorism.
