People attend a rally demanding to resolve the issue of the Kyrgyz-Tajik border, in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan. Kyrgyz and Tajik security forces clash at the border in a water dispute. At least one civilian was reported killed and dozens of people wounded when Kyrgyz and Tajik security forces exchanged fire across the border on Thursday and residents hurled rocks at each other in a fight over a water reservoir. The frontier, dating to the Soviet era, is poorly demarcated and minor border disputes between the two countries are frequent. The latest quarrel quickly escalated beyond the usual scale as border guards on both sides actively joined the fighting.
