Kazakh officers linked to murder
Altynbek Sarsenbaiuly became a critic of the Kazakh government
Kazakhstan's KNB security service has said five of its officers have been arrested over the murder of opposition politician Altynbek Sarsenbaiuly.
The KNB said the five were members of its elite Arystan combat division.
Opposition groups have accused the government of involvement in the death of Mr Sarsenbaiuly, who was found shot dead by a roadside earlier this month.
He was the second opposition politician to be found dead in mysterious circumstances in recent months.
The KNB in a statement called the arrested men "werewolves in epaulettes", a term for corrupt security officials, according to the Reuters news agency.
A sixth man, who was also arrested for organising the operation, was a former law enforcement officer, opposition leader Zharmakhan Tuyakbai
told the Associated Press.
