Kyrgyzstan's interim government on Friday promised to earmark 220 million soms (5 million U.S. dollars) from the state budget for the families of protesters killed or injured in the unrest last month.

Temir Sariyev, deputy premier in charge of finance, told a cabinet meeting that procedures for people to get the aid should be simplified to the maximum extent to help the wounded get timely treatment.

Local reports said one-off payments would be made, with the amount differing according to whether a family member was heavily injured, slightly injured or killed.

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

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