RIA Novosti : Were Islamists Involved in Uzbekistan?

by Laurence on 6/8/2005

RIA Novosti asks, Were Islamists Really Involved in the Events in Uzbekistan?:

So, what really happened in mid-May in the Uzbek town of Andijan? It is still not known for sure how many people were killed in the riot. Nor is it known who had organized it and why. A correct forecast for the future of Uzbekistan and the rest of Central Asia largely depends on whether we can answer these questions correctly.

The Uzbek authorities, Russia and the USA claim that “the Islamic trail” is clearly seen in the events in Andijan. A “green revolution” in Uzbekistan and a total regional chaos are currently most popular “horror stories”.
