(Reuters) - Kyrgyz President Sooronbai Jeenbekov signed an order dismissing Prime Minister Kubatbek Boronov and his cabinet on Friday, his office said in a statement.

Kyrgyz MPs have said Boronov tendered his resignation after opposition groups on Tuesday seized government buildings in response to protests over a disputed parliamentary election which has since been annulled.
