New Tashkent Warning

by Nathan Hamm on 6/7/2005

From the warden system:

In light of the terrorist threat announced in the Travel Warning released by the U.S. Department of State on June 2, 2005, the U.S. Embassy has instructed its personnel not to send their children to school for the rest of the school year.

David Walther said that the school where personnel are most likely to send their kids is a very secure facility. There’s not much of the year left and families are leaving soon anyway. This could just be an extra precaution or a sign that terrorist attacks are expected very soon.
