Osh Plans Celebration

by Laurence on 3/28/2005

Larry Tweed reports:

The people of Osh are planning a celebration to support the turn-over of power, outside their southern White House today (Saturday). Sounds like it’s going to be a big party–of course, we are still holed up. My friend in Bishkek reported hearing gunshots last night and several large crowds of people moving about.

This sounds a bit ominous, but he was also told by a friend of his who works for Kyrgyz security forces to “stock up on water.” Apparently indicating that there might be some problem with the water or that it might be in short supply until things calm down. Fact and fiction are oft confused for one another.
