More than 160 people were reported dead in Kazakhstan on Sunday after several days of upheaval, and almost 6,000 people were jailed as a result of the rioting in Central Asia’s largest country.

The 19-million-strong energy-rich country has been rocked by unrest for the past week, with a number of foreigners detained as a result of the unrest.

According to a government-run information portal, 164 people were killed in the riots, including 103 in Almaty, the country’s largest city, which saw some of the most violent battles between protesters and security forces.
