Residents of Zherge-Tal village blocked the road to a pasture in Naryn region on Friday. Press service of the Office of Plenipotentiary Representative of the Government of Kyrgyzstan in the region reported.
About 170 residents did not let the shepherds to the pasture. Participants of the protest rally — residents of Naryn district — demand grazing of only their cattle on Kum-Bel pasture.
