Kaz Minerals suspends operations at Kyrgyz copper and gold mine

ALMATY (Reuters) - London-listed miner Kaz Minerals KAZ.L has suspended production at its Bozymchak copper and gold mine in Kyrgyzstan, the company said on Tuesday, amid post-election unrest in the Central Asian nation.

Unidentified men destroyed facilities at another gold deposit in the former Soviet republic on Tuesday and local media reported attacks and protests at a few more mines.
