ASTANA, June 10. /TASS/. Four terrorists involved in the attacks on gun shops and army unit in Aktobe (formerly Aktyubinsk) in western Kazakhstan have been eliminated during a special operation carried out in the city, the Anti-Terror Center of the country’s National Security Committee reported on Friday.
"Terrorists’ whereabouts in an apartment of a dwelling house in Nekrasov street have been established as a result of investigative measures. During the negotiations, the terrorists refused to surrender and opened fire. Subsequent attempts to persuade them to lay down arms had no effect. Four terrorists who were in the apartment were destroyed as special operation forces stormed it," the center said.
It added that the terrorists’ accomplice opened fire on a police patrol with a smooth-bore gun in another part of the city and was eliminated by reprisal fire. Two police offers sustained minor injuries.
"There are no casualties among the civilian population and law enforcement officers," the report said.
On June 5, a group of criminals attacked gun shops and a National Guard unit in Aktobe, a city located 100 kilometers (60 miles) from Russia’s border. Six people were killed in the attack, including three troops.
According to Kazakhstan’s Healthcare and Social Development Ministry, 38 people sought medical assistance with injuries of varying severity. According to the Interior Ministry, 13 attackers were killed and 14 wounded. A search for six others is underway.
Kazakh President Nursultan Nazarbayev said at a meeting with head the National Security Committee Vladimir Zhumakanov on June 8 it is necessary to detain all perpetrators of the Aktobe attacks and destroy them in case of armed resistance.
