    BISHKEK, June 1 (RIA Novosti) - About 100 people have stormed into the building of the Supreme Court in Bishkek, capital of Kyrgyzstan. About 200 of people remained in front of the building.

    RIA Novosti correspondent on the site heard the sounds of breaking glass and saw the belongings of those who held the building - mattresses, clothes and dishes - thrown out of the windows, to the merry shouts of the crowd.

    The building of the Supreme Court has thus been cleansed of the supporters of candidates who had lost the parliamentary election in March 2005. They had bottles with petroleum and threatened to set fire to the building.

    About 20 policemen in uniforms but without arms had tried to keep back the storming crowd but eventually stopped interfering.
