Supporters of the interim government regained control of the local government building in Osh, reports said.

The Kyrgyz interim government said on Friday that Usen Sedegov, a former advisor to Bakiyev, and Communist Party leader Iskhak Masaliyev were behind the occupation of three regional government buildings in the south of the country.

But Masaliyev, at a press conference in Bishkek, denied any involvement in the seizure of government buildings.

The prime minister of the Kyrgyz interim government, Roza Otunbayeva, has appointed acting Defense Minister Ismail Isakov as special government representative for the riot-hit regions to negotiate with the protestors.

Otunbayeva said Thursday in a statement that the unrest was closely related to speeches made by Bakiyev supporters during a rally in Bishkek on Wednesday.
