BISHKEK, September 6. /TASS/. Law enforcement officers of Kyrgyzstan have identified the suicide bomber who staged a terrorist attack near the Chinese Embassy in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan’s State National Security Committee told TASS on Tuesday.

"This person was recruited in Turkey. According to our sources, he had a passport issued in the name of citizen of Tajikistan Burkhantdin Jamturayev," the committee said. The accomplices in the terrorist act have also been established, five citizens of the republic have been detained and are now in a detention facility, the National Security Committee said.

Uighur terrorists from Syria are believed to be the masterminds of the terrorist attack staged at the Chinese Embassy in the capital of Kyrgyzstan Bishkek on August 30, according to the State National Security Committee of Kyrgyzstan's recent statement:

"The masterminds of the terrorist attack are the operating in Syria Uighur terrorist groups linked to the terrorist organization Jabhat al-Nusra."

Emissaries of that organization through the leader of the international terrorist organization Jama'at al-Tawhid wal-Jihad, Abu Saloh, gave the perpetrators the task to organize a terrorist attack against the Chinese Embassy and financed the action.

The building of the Chinese Embassy in Kyrgyzstan was rocked by an explosion at the end of August. A car driven by a suicide bomber exploded in the morning of August 30 after ramming the gates of the Chinese Embassy in the Kyrgyz capital Bishkek. None of the Chinese diplomats was injured. The terrorist was killed in the attack, and two Kyrgyz nationals were injured. The blast was so strong that it could be heard almost in all neighborhoods of the Kyrgyz capital.
