Police in Kazakhstan have killed dozens of protesters who tried to storm government buildings as a Russia-led military alliance approved a peacekeeping force to the Central Asian country to quell unrest triggered by a rise in fuel prices. Al Jazeera reports that the latest protests come a day after demonstrators stormed the presidential palace and the mayor’s office in Almaty and set both on fire. Crowds also briefly overran the Almaty airport on Wednesday, prompting several flight cancellations. Bloomberg meanwhile reports that the unrest in the country, which produces more than 40% of the world’s uranium, has seen an 8% surge in the price of the commodity, with share prices in uranium companies in North America and Australia also jumping.
