    Five terrorists were killed and two police officers sustained injuries in an anti-terrorist operation in the Kazakh city of Aktobe on Friday, Kazakhstan's National Security Committee said.

    ALMATY (Sputnik) — Another terrorist was killed nearby when he opened fire at a police vehicle, according to the committee. Two police officers sustained minor injuries.

    "A search operation led to the location of terrorists in an apartment on Nekrasov Street. During negotiations, the terrorists refused to surrender and opened fire. Subsequent attempts to persuade them to surrender were unsuccessful…four terrorists who were in the apartment were eliminated," the committee said in a statement.
