ALMATY (Reuters) – Kyrgyz security forces have launched a second raid on the house of former president Almazbek Atambayev, independent news website Akipress.kg reported on Thursday, citing witnesses.

According to the website, witnesses saw security operatives entered the house and heard gunshots. Atambayev evaded arrest during a previous raid on Wednesday night, which failed after supporters clashed with security forces.
