    At least three people remain in critical condition after a Monday attack on a police station in Kazakhstan's city of Almaty, Nurzhan Isabekov, the chief city surgeon, said.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The shooting in the southern Kazakh city of Almaty on Monday, described as an act of terrorism by Kazakh President Nursultan Nazarbayev, claimed lives of five people and injured seven others.

    "There are currently seven patients in Almaty hospitals — three are in critical condition, two are also in the intensive care unit in stable critical condition," Isabekov said as quoted by the Tengrinews agency.

    Following the incident, the two suspects in the attack have been detained, while the terror alert level in Kazakhstan's largest city has been increased to the highest "red" one.
