Kyrgyzstan threatens to review U.S. airbase deal

BISHKEK (Reuters) - Kyrgyzstan threatened on Friday to review its agreement
with the United States on the use of a military airbase in the Central Asian
state following the fatal shooting of a Kyrgyz citizen by a U.S. airman.

U.S. relations with its key Central Asian partner soured this month after the
U.S. Air Force airman killed a fuel truck driver at a checkpoint in a security
incident.

On Friday Kyrgyzstan's parliament passed a resolution calling on the government
to take tough action.

Troops at the base cannot be prosecuted by Kyrgyz courts under an agreement
between the two countries as they enjoy a similar status to diplomats.

2. Does this country have military everywhere?
We spend more trying to control things abroad than we do trying to improve things at home. At least, it seems that way sometimes.
