Former Kyrgyz president Atambayev detained after special forces storm his mansion for third time

Atambayev was apprehended on Thursday evening, his office told the media, after he gave himself up to law enforcement officers. The former President, who ruled the former Soviet republic from 2011 to 2017, surrendered to police following several hours of talks, according to Interfax. He left the house of his own accord, it turned out.

Earlier in the day, the assault teams managed to finally gain entry to his mansion in the village of Koi-Tash, using heavy armor, rubber bullets and flash grenades.

Meanwhile, media reports suggested that the standoff isn’t over yet, as the convoy carrying the detained ex-President was blocked by crowds of his supporters.

Gunfire and blasts were heard in the area, with security forces reportedly having to take a detour to leave the embattled village.
