Two students from Kazakhstan detained in the US

ASTANA. April 23. KAZINFORM - Once identified the main suspects in the terrorist attack in Boston, U.S. law enforcement agencies began checking their possible links and contacts. This is reported on the official website of the Kazakh Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Law enforcement agencies interviewed students who have studied with the suspects and could in some way contact with them.

As part of the examining process it was revealed that two students from Kazakhstan in the course of their education violated the US visa regime and in this respect they were detained until the circumstances clarification. Currently, the Kazakh Consul is in Boston, working with the US authorities and keeping in touch with the students and their families. Our citizens do not have any complaints related to physical condition or negative treatment by U.S. law enforcement. Kazakhstan diplomats are assisting them in finding a lawyer.

On this issue the Foreign Ministry supports connection with the State Department and the U.S. Embassy in Astana.

"We would like to confirm our willingness to cooperate with the United States government on the issue and stress that Kazakhstan strongly condemns terrorism and terrorist acts in any form", says the official website of the Foreign Ministry.
