Criminal activity of foreign citizens, engaged in robbery and attacks in Osh region, was stopped. Internal Affairs Department of the region reported.

Citizens of a neighboring state, who arrived as labor migrants, watched rich citizens and attacked them. On the night of November 21, four masked men burst into the house of a 48-year-old local resident in Kurshab village, Uzgen district, Osh region. The attackers, threatening with a knife to the owner of the house and his wife, tied them up and four their minor children, stole jewelry, mobile phones, and then drove away in the owner’s car.
