Kazakhstan in flames as three cops BEHEADED in bloody uprising - govt orders 'shoot to kill'.

KAZAKHSTAN has erupted in flames during a bloody uprising which has seen three security officers BEHEADED by mobs in the street.

The authorities have characterised the unrest as being led by foreign terrorist groups
Releasing videos like this of cars filled with weapons as proof

Horrific images that we’ve blurred show decapitated bodies laying in the streets. A reported 18 security officers have been killed and dozens of protesters have been in their words 'eliminated',
with more than 2000 detained.

The Kazakh government said the severing of three officers’ heads proved that riots were of a “terrorist character”and has ordered forces to shoot to kill without warning.

Russian troops have arrived at the former Soviet state to help crush the protests - which began on Sunday over a sharp rise in the price of fuel. The contingent called the CSTO is a military defensive alliance of ex-soviet states.

The EU has urged Russia to respect Kazakhstan’s sovereignty. The foreign secretary too condemning the violence.

These protests have spread across the country at lightning speed morphing into a more general discontent over living standards and stagnant one-party rule

Russia may be stepping in to help but this is also Vladimir Putin’s worst nightmare
happening next door, a reminder of how quickly the public can turn against authoritarian rule.
