    BISHKEK, June 1 (RIA Novosti) - About 300 people are storming the building of the Supreme Court of Kyrgyzstan. They say that they represent the people and demand that the court should resume operation. About a hundred supporters of several candidates who lost the parliamentary election in March 2005 have been holding the building for 45 days. They have bottles with Molotov cocktail in front of them and threaten to set fire to the court in case of storming. The crowd that is storming the building was brought to the site in about a score of minivans, which have been parked around the corner.

     The attackers have turquoise bands on their sleeves, while the defenders of the building wear red bands.
