ASTANA, November 13 (Itar-Tass) —— The Kazakh National Security Committee’s Border Forces units stationed along the Kyrgyz border have been alerted over the terror act in Taraz, Zhambyl region, a committee source told Itar-Tass on Sunday.
“Border units have been reinforced,” he said. The police in southern regions were alerted too. Security was tightened in other regions of the country, including Astana.
A 34-year-old follower of the Jihad idea killed seven people, including five police officers, in Taraz on Saturday. Two officers were taken to hospital with gunfire wounds. Apart from committing the murders, he robbed a hunter shop, hijacked two vehicles and opened grenade launcher fire at the building of the regional department of the National Security Committee.
A criminal case was opened on the terror act and murder charges. The interior minister took the case under personal control.
The Taraz tragedy was the second terror act in the republic this fall. Members of the Caliphate Soldiers extremist organization blasted two bombs in Atyrau, western Kazakhstan on October 31. One bomb blasted near the regional administration’s building, and the other went off on a vacant land lot close to a residential area. The suicide bomber died in the explosion.
