Kyrgyzstan's security service says two terrorist organizations, the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan and the Islamic Jihad Union, directly plotted and participated in ethnic violence in the country's southern cities of Osh and Jalalabad.

Officials add that supporters and relatives of ousted President Kurmanbek Bakiyev allegedly promised to provide 30 million US dollars to those organizations, saying the results of the investigation have been confirmed by concerned countries.

A referendum is set to be held in Kyrgyzstan next week aimed at approving a new constitution. The security service says the nation will firmly address any attempts to disrupt the referendum.
