Almaty Violence

Category: In The Media,PersonalChrisM @ 5:05 am

A little late, but I’ve just come across a couple of entries on an incident in Almaty. The exact cause is not abundantly clear, but these two posts (here and here) should give you a little background information. It appears there was a fight, which grew into an all-out brawl, involving weapons. You can read more about previous incidents, last year, here. There is a fuller summary of the more recent event here, which appears to give both sides/versions of events.
Due to the laws in this country, I do not feel able to pass any comment on these incidents, I leave it to the reader to make their own minds up.
The reason these links are a little late in forthcoming is that I had to wait for a new month to begin, as I was way over my 700 Megabytes limit for March on our ADSL connection.
