ASTANA, November 1 (Itar-Tass) —— The Caliphate Soldiers Islamist group has claimed responsibility for the Monday explosions in Atyrau in western Kazakhstan, the Long War Journal website said on Tuesday. The group said it would continue attacks unless the Kazakh government listened to their demands. “The two explosions were a warning to the government,” the Caliphate Soldiers said. The first bomb blasted in a waste bin close to the edifice of the regional administration at about 8:45 a.m. local time (6:45 a.m. Moscow time). The second bomb exploded on a vacant land near a residential area at 9:50 a.m. local time. It appeared that the second explosion was triggered by a suicide bomber. The bomber was identified as “Atyrau native Baurzhan Kanatovich Sultangaliyev born in 1987,” the regional prosecutor’s office reported. The search of Sultangaliyev’s house revealed a handmade bomb, components of explosives and a bomb assembly manual. “The handmade bomb was taken to a safe place and demolished. According to the preliminary information, the bombs blasted on Monday were not stuffed with shrapnel,” the prosecutor said. A task force continues the investigation. The regional police were put on the alert.
