The Belarussian prosecutor general's office has received a formal extradition request for Kurmanbek Bakiyev, the ousted Kyrgyzstan president, officials said Friday.

Kyrgyz interim authorities allege Bakiyev was involved in the shooting of civilians during deadly protests in the country that led to his ouster.

Belarus also received an 18-page attachment to the extradition request, a prosecutor general's office spokesman told RIA Novosti, without elaborating.

So far no official statement on a possible decision concerning the extradition request has been made.

Bakiyev fled to Belarus after he was ousted during violent protests last month.

The April 7-8 clashes between police and civilians in the Kyrgyz capital Bishkek killed more then 80 people. More than 1,500 others were injured.
