A four-year-old girl was killed in shelling in Alma-Ata. It happened on January 7, but it became known only on Sunday, January 9, according to the Tengrinews.kz edition in the Telegram channel.
Children's Ombudsman Aruzhan Sain said that on January 7, a car with four children was driving along Seifullin Street at the intersection with Satpayev in Alma-Ata. The car was shot at and a four-year-old girl was killed.
The day before, it was reported that an 11-year-old child had died from a gunshot wound in Alma-Ata. On January 5, the boy went for a walk with his parents and was fatally wounded.
On January 10, Kazakhstan declared a nationwide mourning for those killed as a result of the riots that began on January 2 due to an increase in gas prices for cars from 60 to 120 tenge (from 10 to 20 rubles).
According to the latest data, 26 protesters and 18 security officials were killed during the riots. 125 cases were initiated.
