Terrorist Attack In Tajikistan – Car With Suicide Bomber

Posted by Info on 03/09/2010

The terrorist attack in the Tajik city of Khujand killed one police officer and injured 25 people.
The GAZ-24 car was blown up at the building of the regional police department combating organised crime.
As was established in the examination of the car several suicide bombers, but not only one as was supposed earlier, were in the car, the official said.
An Uzbek militant group with links to al Qaeda was probably behind the attack, the ministry said.

Tajikistan suffered its first ever suicide bomb attack in Jan. 2005, when a bomber struck the Emergencies Ministry in the capital Dushanbe, killing himself and wounding several people.

Tajik President Imomali Rakhmon last week urged parents to withdraw their children from religious schools abroad, arguing they could come home as “terrorists”.
