BISHKEK, August 30. /TASS/.One person was killed and two more were wounded as a result of an explosion on Tuesday morning when an unknown suspect tried to crash his vehicle through the gates of the Chinese embassy in Kyrgyzstan, a police source told TASS.
"The perpetrator inside the car died on the spot, while the embassy's gate and fence sustained some damage," he said.
Early reports also indicated that two guards on duty at the embassy were wounded. Kyrgyz police arrived at the scene to iron out the details surrounding the incident.
At around 10:00 a.m. local time (0400GMT) an unknown individual driving a Mitsubishi attempted to ram his automobile into the embassy’s gates, with a blast occurring shortly afterwards.
According to preliminary data, an explosive device had been planted in the vehicle. The embassy’s building and some adjacent houses were damaged. As a result of the blast, the driver died instantly. Three local citizens who worked on the premises of the embassy were wounded. No Chinese diplomats were hurt. The embassy compound has been cordoned off by police on security grounds.
Currently, bomb disposal experts are working on the scene. Witnesses say residents from all of Bishkek’s districts were able to hear the blast. Scattered debris from the car explosion could be found some 200 or 300 meters from the scene.
