ASTANA, June 10. /TASS/. One of the six suspected terrorists put on the wanted list after a series of armed attacks on gun shops and a National Guard unit in Aktoba (former Aktyubinsk), a city in the west of Kazakhstan, was wounded on Friday in an operation to seize the attackers, local news agency BNews.kz reported.
The news agency identified him as Dmitry Tanatarov. The man was wounded in an exchange of fire near the local shopping center Otyrar and was taken to hospital where medics are operating on him. The clinic is guarded by police.
On Sunday, June 5, an armed group staged a series of attacks on gun shops and a National Guard unit in Aktoba, in which seven people were killed, including three servicemen.
According to Kazakhstan’s ministry of health and social development, as many as 38 people were taken to hospital with wounds of various degree of gravity. According to updated reports of the Interior Ministry, thirteen attackers were killed and four wounded in the anti-terrorist operation. Six more were put on the wanted list.
After the regime of counter-terrorist operation was imposed in the Aktoba region, the National Security Committee declared a "yellow level" of terrorist alert for the rest of the country’s regions that will be in place for 40 days. Kazakhstan’s President Nursultan Nazarbayev took the situation in Aktoba under his personal control.
Meeting with the head of the Kazakh National Security Committee Vladimir Zhumakanov on Wednesday, the president demanded that all the attackers be detained or killed in case of an armed resistance.
