Protesters have seized the airport in Kazakhstan's biggest city, according to reports.

Russia's Tass news agency said the president's residence in Almaty, where thousands of demonstrators gathered outside on Wednesday, was engulfed in flames, a building that includes the mayor's office was also burning from top to bottom, and the prosecutors office had also been set alight.
