Neweurasia.net has another photo up from Twitpic and a scan of the letter itself, allegedly. The text in English, according to Neweurasia, reads:
On April 7, 2010, there was a coup in the Kyrgyz Republic. As a result of an armed seizure of power, ordinary innocent citizens had to pay in blood [and] the image of the state was heavily battered. All responsibility lies with the members of the Provisional Government, who used them to seize power. I understand my responsibility too for past events. Therefore, I offer deepest condolences to all relatives and friends of the victims. In these tragic days for the Kyrgyz people, understanding the responsibility for the future of the Kyrgyz people, preserving the integrity of the state, of Kyrgyz statehood, in accordance with the Article 50 of the Constitution of the Kyrgyz Republic, I hand in my resignation.
They reports rumors that the pics of Otunbayeva and the letter itself are fake. However see my comment there: Gazeta.kz, which is basically a distributor of Kazakhstan Today, an official source of news, is reporting that Kazakhstan’s ambassador to Kazakhstan delivered a letter of resignation from Bakiyev today. Whether it is the exact same one in those photos, I cannot confirm.
