Security services in Kyrgyzstan said Friday they had killed two members of what they claim was the cell of an international terror group during a nightime raid in the capital Bishkek.

The Kyrgyz State Committee for National Security (SCNS) refused to name "the international terror group" but said the two dead terror suspects were responsible for "particularly serious crimes" in the Central Asian state.

"The fighters put up fierce armed resistance and were eliminated," the SCNS statement said, adding the raid had taken place Thursday night.

"The cell members that were killed were involved in a number of particularly serious crimes including the murder of a policeman in the 8th district of Bishkek." 

A 26-year-old policeman, Aktilek Abduvaliev, was shot dead after attempting to check the documents of two people who later escaped on bicycles last month, authorities said.
