CNN reports the biggest news from Kyrgyzstan so far:

 The ousted Kyrgyz president is willing to resign if he and his relatives are allowed safe passage out of the country, according to sources in southern Kyrgyzstan.

But there are sticking points in forging a deal that would allow Kurmanbek Bakiev to leave the central Asian country, engulfed by instability after fiery and deadly demonstrations raged in the capital of Bishkek last week.

Protesters took over the main government offices in the capital, including the presidential palace, and that forced Bakiev to flee to his native village near the city of Jalal-Abad in the country's south and ushered in the formation of an interim government led by political opposition leaders.
