Following the storming of the administration building, demonstrators in Alma-Ata broke into the building of the local prosecutor's office and set it on fire, the agency zakon.kz reports.

Marauders continue to plunder in catering and kiosks, says the publication. In the published footage, the explosions of stun grenades are heard.

On Wednesday, January 5, local protests escalated into clashes with police and military. The demonstrators took possession of a combat vehicle and weapons. With shields, sticks and reinforcement bars, they broke into the building of the local administration.

The protests in the country began after a two-fold increase in prices for liquefied gas (from 60 to 120 tenge per liter). The protesters demanded to return the prices to 50 tenge. The authorities made concessions. However, the people refused to disperse. They said they would not leave even if the price dropped to 35 tenge. Now they demand not only the resignation of the government, but also the "father of the nation" Nursultan Nazarbayev. Residents of the country believe that he is still the secret leader of the country.
