Report: Suicide bomber wounds 3 in Kazakhstan

A news agency in Kazakhstan is reporting that a suicide bomber has wounded three people and killed himself near a security service building in a northwestern town.
Kazinform quoted General Prosecutor's Office spokesman Zhandos Umiraliyev as saying that the bomber detonated explosives strapped to his belt near the building of the National Security Committee in Aktobe Tuesday, wounding an officer and a guard.
The agency quotes a local doctor saying three people were wounded.
Umiraliyev says the bomber was a 25-year-old suspected criminal who killed himself to "avoid responsibility."
Compared to its volatile Central Asian neigbors, Kazakhstan has been spared major attacks by Islamic extremists active in the region.
