"Herpaderpa, lets ban prayer in the workplace and have the Police forcibly enforce the ban!
What could possibly go wrong as a result...."
An attacker described by officials as a jihadist went on a shooting rampage in southern Kazakhstan on Saturday, killing at least seven people and blowing himself up, Kazakh authorities said.
The violence was the deadliest in a recent spate of small-scale attacks in Kazakhstan, a mostly Muslim former Soviet republic in Central Asia where such bloodshed used to be rare.
Last week, prosecutors blamed what they said was a recently formed militant group called Jund al-Khilafah for an apparently botched attack in the city of Atyrau that killed only the bomber. Two separate bombings in May also left only the attackers dead. Several police officers have been killed this year in shootouts with people suspected of being militants.
The suspect then killed two police officers who were pursuing him and took their weapons, including an assault rifle. He commandeered a car, and then went home and picked up a grenade launcher before attacking the regional headquarters of the National Security Committee. He was quickly surrounded by the police and wounded, evidently in a shootout.
When the police tried to disarm the suspect, “He blew himself up, killing a police commander, Captain G. Baitasov,” the deputy prosecutor general, Nurmakhanbet Isayev, said in televised remarks.
Witnesses told Russian television that the suspect appeared to be an ethnic Kazakh, and that he was specifically targeting the police.
