What’s happening in Kyrgyzstan?

There seems to be something going on in Kyrgyzstan. There are reports of clashes between protesters and the security forces. According to news reports, rising fuel prices and corruption are the causes for protest.

Kyrgyzstan apparently hosts American and Russian bases, and is a neighbour to China. So it is a strategically important place, and if this country were to fall into anarchy or a state of continued disturbance, it could have huge repercussions in the region and world diplomacy.
