Kyrgyz Interior Ministry says grenade launcher RPG-26 used in Taraz terrorist attacks wasn't brought from Kyrgyzstan.

The grenade launcher RPG-26 used in the recent terrorist acts in Taraz, southern Kazakhstan, was not brought from Kyrgyzstan, said the Interior Ministry of Kyrgyzstan in the statement issued on Friday. Media reports citing selected officials of Kazakhstan saying that the grenade launcher used during the recent terrorist attacks in Taraza was brought from Kyrgyzstan have not been confirmed, the Interior Ministry said. The Interior Ministry reminded that 5 grenade launchers were lost during the April and June events of 2010. Four of the grenade launchers were returned. The missing grenade launcher is RPG-7V, which is different from the grenade launcher RPG-26 used in the terrorist attack in Taraz, the Interior Ministry concluded.
