BISHKEK -- Kyrgyzstan's State Committee for National Security (UKMK) says its officers have arrested two foreign nationals who allegedly were trying to join so-called Islamic State (IS) militants in Syria.
The UKMK did not disclose the identities or nationalities of the 24- and 50-year-old suspects.
But authorities said on June 21 that the men are citizens of a country neighboring Kyrgyzstan.
They have been charged with illegally entering Kyrgyzstan.
According to the UKMK, the men crossed the border into Kyrgyzstan in February and were detained on June 10.
