Uzbekistan's president says there are casualties from protests - Russian agencies
Uzbek President Shavkat Mirziyoyev said on Sunday there were casualties among civilians and law enforcement officers after unrest in the country's northwestern Karakalpakstan province, Russian news agencies reported.
A RIA report used the word "victims", implying deaths, but a TASS report referred only to "casualties".
Mirziyoyev's comments came a day after he dropped plans to roll back the province's autonomy following a rare public protest there.
