About 50 local residents have blocked a highway connecting Kyrgyzstan’s southern region of Osh with neighboring Tajikistan, in a protest over exports of gasoline the protesters say is needed in Kyrgyzstan.

Fifteen trucks destined for Tajikistan, each carrying 40 tons of gasoline, have been stuck on the highway near the village of Kara-Myk as a result of the protests.
