More than two dozen Islamic extremists rampage throughout the city of Aktobe, Kazakhstan on June 5, 2016. First they storm two hunting shops and then, with the newly acquired weapons, the insurgents attack an army base. These recent events are shaking the relatively quiet country of Kazakhstan as four civilians and three police officers are killed during the attack. Additionally, the attacks add to the growing discontent with President Nazarbayev's tenure.
