ASTANA -- The Kazakhstani National Security Committee (KNB) set up a hotline for concerned citizens, the government's Committee for Religious Affairs said Tuesday (January 10).
Citizens aware of terror threats can dial 110 to report them. Calls are free from both mobile and land-line phones.
The government laid the groundwork for the hotline in a resolution in December.
The Taliban have been using advanced weapons available only to the Russian military, according to a security source in western Afghanistan.
Popular support in Central Asia for Islamist insurgencies in the Middle East and beyond is waning.
