Kazakh Police Say Two Wanted Men Killed In Special Operation

By RFE/RL's Kazakh Service
AQTOBE, Kazakhstan -- Police say two people have been killed and one wounded in a special police operation in Aqtobe in western Kazakhstan.

Police say those killed were suspects wanted in connection with the murder of a police officer.

During the operation on June 23, police cordoned off a neighborhood of Aqtobe at the intersection of Sherniyazov and Herzen streets and evacuated residents.

Witnesses told RFE/RL that residents were told by masked officers to leave their homes immediately, with some people not even having enough time to gather their valuables.

Gas and electricity were then cut off.

News agencies, citing residents, reported three explosions.

Later, the authorities denied this.

look, it is outrageous. Kazakhs just like Russians are killing peaceful Wahhabi Sunni protesters, sponsored and trained by CIA and Saudi Arabia. Flags are flying at half-mast at CIA headquarters. Days of mourning never end at CIA. More news are coming from Russia - they are going to kill more CIA operatives soon.
