Kazakhstan calls Security Council meeting after suspected Islamist shootings

Baku, July 18, AZERTAC

Nursultan Nazarbayev, the president of Kazakhstan, convened an emergency meeting of the Central Asian nation's Security Council on Monday, his office said, after gunmen attacked police and security forces in Almaty, killing four people, according to Reuters.

The attacks in the former Soviet republic's biggest city followed deadly clashes between Islamist militants and security forces in the city of Aktobe in June and a foiled plot in another province, also blamed on followers of radical Islam.
