Dozens killed as Kazakhstan grapples with biggest protests since independence



Dozens of people have been killed in Kazakhstan as the country grapples with the biggest protests since independence. More than 1,000 people have been injured. President Kassym-Jomart Tokayev has declared a nationwide emergency, accusing “terrorists” of overrunning strategic facilities. Protests have been raging since the new year. The unrest was sparked by rising fuel prices, but has since widened to other issues including corruption and unemployment. Tensions have not eased despite the mass resignation of the government.
