Kazakh security forces killed five suspected militants on Friday linked to deadly attacks this week on a national guard base and several firearms shops in the city of Aktobe.

A Special Forces unit stormed an apartment and killed four suspects after they refused to surrender and opened fire, the KNB said in a statement. There were no casualties among civilians or security forces.

Another man described as "the terrorists' accomplice" opened fire on police in the street, lightly wounding two, and was killed in return fire.

Ramadan death toll is now at 776
