A Kazakh policeman who was wounded in a shoot-out in Almaty on July 28 has died from his injuries.

Officials said police officer Yernaz Kozhakhmetov never regained consciousness and died on July 30.

The gun battle on July 28 also left another policeman dead.

Police said security forces in Almaty on July 30 killed six people -- whom they described as "bandits" -- during a special operation targeting a gang suspected of being responsible for shooting the officers.

Police said the six were members of a criminal organization, and that all of them had previously served prison sentences for theft and assault.

My thoughts and prayers go out to the family and friends of these two police officers who gave their lives in the line of duty. May they rest in peace.

and of course RFE/RL did not put the word "bandits" in quotes for nothing. The peaceful Wahhabi Sunni activists are not bandits in US government view, they are peaceful protesters. Kazakh police killed 6 peaceful Sunni protesters armed and trained by CIA and financed by Saudi Arabia
