Bishkek: Several hundred residents from the Uzbek enclave of Sokh Sunday attacked a Kyrgyz border guard base, reports said Monday.

The residents from the Uzbek village of Khushyar attacked Kyrgyz frontier guards who were erecting supports for electricity transmission lines in Kyrgyzstan`s Batken region.

The guards did not use their weapons.

Two vehicles were burned and a passing bus stopped and attacked.
