BISHKEK (Reuters) - Kyrgyz President Almazbek Atambayev ordered the government on Tuesday to strengthen anti-terrorism measures in the Kyrgyz capital and in regions, his office said in statement.

A suspected suicide car bomber rammed the gates of the Chinese embassy in the Kyrgyz capital Bishkek earlier on Tuesday, killing the attacker and wounding at least three other people.
