A car with an unknown man at the wheel tried to ram the gates of the Chinese Embassy in Kyrgyzstan, after which the explosion took place. The man in the car was killed and two security personnel were injured, Interfax reports.
“According to the chief physician of an emergency ward in Bishkek, the ambulance crew arrived on the scene and administered the first aid for two staff members of the embassy. There is also a dead body of a man, who, according to preliminary data, was in the car,” Interfax quotes the representative of the embassy as saying.
Kyrgyz police officers are working at the scene to find out the circumstances of the explosion.
Deputy Prime Minister of the Republic Zhenish Razakov told reporters that a suicide bomber riding behind the wheel of the Mitsubishi Delica rammed the embassy gates.
The victims were hospitalized with multiple shrapnel injuries.
According to the Interior Ministry of the Republic, the State Committee of National Security is likely to be engaged in the investigation.
The embassy is located in the southern part of the Kyrgyz capital, far from the city center and close to residential areas. But, according to local residents and social media, the explosion was so strong that it was even heard in the center of Bishkek, opening and shattering windows.
