The discovery comes just two weeks after the discovery of an even longer tunnel under the border.

BISHKEK -- Kyrgyz officials say they have found a second tunnel along the Kyrgyz-Uzbek border purportedly used to illegally cross the border as well as for smuggling goods.

The State Committee for National Security (UKMK) said on June 7 that the tunnel leading to the Uzbek side of the border was discovered in the town of Kara-Suu in the southern Osh region.
According to the UKMK, the 155-meter-long tunnel was 1.8 meters high and just under 1 meter wide.

A probe has been launched to find those involved in digging and using the tunnel, which was almost 18 meters below the ground, for illegal activities.
Just two weeks ago, the UKMK said it had discovered a 270-meter-long tunnel connecting the village of Telman in the Kara-Suu district with Uzbekistan that also may have been used for similar purposes.
