Two Mongolian Border Guards Killed at the Border with Tuva

Two Mongolian border guards in Tsagaan-Uul soum, Khovsgol aimag were shot dead on May 5 when they were on duty at the border with Tuva Republic of Russian Federation. B. Monkhoo, a sergeant-major in the same army unit, has been missing since then.

The Border Defense Authority (BDA) has said the suspected killer is likely to be heavily armed with 200 combat bullets, and a rifle. He is also believed to have two horses with him.

Residents of the Bayanzurkh and Tsetserleg soums of Khovsgol aimag are feeling insecure that such a man is at large. The BDA has mobilized 59 soldiers, one helicopter and one armed personnel carrier to search for Monkhoo.

They are covering an area of 100 km square around the crime site but it is not an easy task in a mountainous and marshy area, given footprints in the snow now melt fast “We have informed the Russian side through our border representative,” said Colonel Kh. Jekei of the BDA at a press conference on May 8. . The BDA has offered its condolence to the relatives of J. Enkhbat and D.Gendenjamts, the two guards killed.
