In an interview with RFE/RL's Kazakh Service, a former oil worker in troubled western Kazakhstan, Nurlybek Nurgalyev, talks about being wounded after police and security forces fired on striking oil workers in the city of Zhanaozen. Clashes between police and out-of-work laborers left at least 13 people dead and more than 85 wounded. The violence erupted on December 16 in the oil-rich western province of Manghystau following months of tension.
