Asia,Kazakhstan,Crime/Disaster/Accident, Fri, 27 Apr 2012 IANS

Bikshkek, April 27 (IANS) Kyrgyzstan Thursday paid tributes to the victims of the Chernobyl nuclear accident, 26 years after the world's worst nuclear disaster.


Rallies and requiems were held in major cities and regional centers across Kyrgyzstan, reported Xinhua.



In the capital Bishkek, Mayor Isa Omurkulov, representatives of the embassies of Russia, Belarus and Ukraine, and locals attended a requiem in memory of the victims.



'Many Kyrgyz citizens - members of rescue operations - were radiated at Chernobyl and became disabled. Tragically, many died in the war with an invisible enemy,' Omurkulov said at the gathering.



On April 26, 1986, the nuclear power plant at Chernobyl in Ukraine experienced a series of explosions, causing a spread of radiation across Ukraine and neighbouring countries in east and west Europe.
