By Asker Sultanov

OSH -- The second phase of nationwide training for Kyrgyz imams began in Osh Monday (January 2), the Bishkek-based Iyman Foundation for the Development of Spiritual Culture said in a Wednesday (January 4) statement.

The training is part of an Iyman-operated project to raise clerics' religious knowledge and to prevent extremism in Kyrgyzstan.

Iyman is co-operating with the Spiritual Administration for Muslims of Kyrgyzstan as part of a 2014-2020 government policy on religion, Iyman said.

The trainees in the second phase include 118 imams from Chui Province, 134 from Batken and 10 from Osh, organisers say.
