Due to wounds received during the conflict on the border of Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan, two more people died on February 7. In total, ten deaths were recorded, as Reuters reported.
A total of 140 people sought medical help in Kazakhstan after the clashes, and another 25 people turned to doctors in neighboring Kyrgyzstan.
Deputy Interior Minister Aleksey Kalaichidi said dozens of people remain in custody on Sunday as police establish their role in the incident.
“Investigations have been carried out against 19 million people across the country suspected of using clashes to spread hate speech,” he added.
Recall that the conflict was provoked by a dispute over the right of way and led to a fight between ethnic Kazakhs and Dungans, a minority group with Chinese roots. At night, the conflict only flared up more, and an angry crowd set fire to dozens of buildings and cars.
As we reported, in the mass brawl that occurred on the border of Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan, about 1,000 people were involved
