Kyrgyzstani ex-president survives ‘assassination attempt’ as govt sends troops to capital amid massive protests

Former Kyrgyzstani President Almazbek Atambayev has reportedly survived an assassination attempt, which injured two people. The incumbent leader, Sooronbay Jeenbekov, has ordered a state of emergency in Bishkek over mass protests.

Atambayev’s car came under fire, his aide, Kunduz Zholdubaeva, said in a Facebook post, adding that the politician escaped unharmed. She also posted a video, in which Atambayev accuses some security officials and members of rival “clans” of trying to assassinate him while saying he got the information about the plot in advance.

A video published on Twitter by a local journalist also allegedly shows a moment when an unknown assailant draws a pistol and fires at ex-president’s car as it drives through a busy crossing crowded with people in the nation’s capital of Bishkek.

According to some reports, Atambayev’s bodyguard was injured in the incident.
