BISHKEK, Kyrgyzstan, March 24 - Protesters stormed the presidential compound in the Kyrgyz capital today, seizing control after clashing with riot policemen who had surrounded it during a large opposition rally.
At the same time, an opposition leader, former Prime Minister Kurmanbek Bakiev, vowed to hold new elections. "We will establish order," Mr. Bakiev was quoted as saying by Reuters. "We will not allow looting. We will hold our own elections to start our rule."
