BEIJING (Reuters) - China’s Foreign Ministry said on Tuesday that a bombing at its embassy in the Kyrgyz capital Bishkek was a “serious terrorist attack” and that China would “resolutely strike against all forms of terrorism”.

A suspected suicide car bomber rammed the gates of the embassy earlier in the day, killing the attacker and wounding at least three other people, officials said.
