Bomb blast at Chinese embassy in Kyrgyzstan

A suspected suicide bomber rammed a car into the gates of the Chinese embassy in Kyrgyzstan on Tuesday, officials said.

The explosion killed him and wounded at least three others.

Officials have called it a “terrorist act”.

Kyrgyzstan shares a border with China and is a former Soviet republic of 6 million people.

Authorities of the majority-Muslim country routinely detain suspected militants accused of links with Islamic State.

An anti-Chinese militant group made up of ethnic Uighurs is also active in the region.

Beijing has condemned the attack and called for those behind it to be severely punished.
