BISHKEK. Jan 8 (Interfax) - Kyrgyzstan's State National Security Committee said on Wednesday that it had arrested a member of an "international terrorist organization" who had been recruiting mercenaries to fight in Syria.
"In a counterterrorist operation in Osh [a city in southern Kyrgyzstan], State National Security Agency forces detained a militant from the international terrorist organization Islamic Jihad Union (IJU), the Kyrgyz national P.K.N., born in 1974, who had undergone combat training as a member of a bandit unit on the territory of Afghanistan and who had been on an international wanted list for participating in organizing and carrying through terrorist acts on the territory of [Kyrgyzstan's] Jalal-Abad region," the Committee press service told Interfax.
