BISHKEK, Kyrgyzstan: Police in Kyrgyzstan said they were holding four suspects on Tuesday over the beating of a journalist known for investigating corruption, an incident that triggered international condemnation.

Bolot Temirov, 40, was attacked outside his media outlet’s office in the capital Bishkek last Thursday and had his telephone stolen. The interior ministry said it was holding four residents of the southern Jalal-Abad region over the attack, which was condemned by the United States and the Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE).
