Kazakhstan detains former security chief for treason

Al Jazeera, 08 Jan 2022
Authorities in Kazakhstan say they have detained the former national security chief on suspicion of treason after days of violent protests.
Kazakh President Kassym-Jomart Tokayev says the protests against his government are “orchestrated” by what he calls “armed bandits”.
He has authorised his forces to “fire without warning” while welcoming Russian troops into the country to help.
