Observers Worry About Islamists

Bagila Bukharbaeva reports growing concern about Islamist exploitation of Central Asian instability:

The analyst, who asked not to be identified out of concern about possible retribution because of the tumultuous situation in the country, said Hizb-ut-Tahrir members also came to watch anti-Akayev rallies in the south, where the protests that led to his ouster first took hold.
