May 30 (Reuters) - Centerra Gold Inc said operations at its flagship mine in Kyrgyzstan have been suspended after protesters from the local community blocked the only road to the mine earlier this week.

The national grid power supply to the Kumtor mine has been disrupted by the protesters, the company said.
