Re-building communities as refugees return home to Kyrgyzstan

All along Alisher Navoi Street, the scene is the same from house to house. Some of the buildings are just charred walls. Some have collapsed completely. Others bear bullet holes from intense gunfire.

The street forms part of a poor ethnic Uzbek neighborhood that saw some of the worst of the ethnic violence that swept through Osh, Kyrgyzstan in June. In the wake of the devastation, small groups of men, women and children stand along the street, many with a looks of shock or resignation on their faces.
