New Attack(s?) in Khanabad, Uzbekistan closes the Kyrgyz border; Suicide bombing reported in Andijon [Updated]

There’s a flutter of news about this and I won’t attempt to add any commentary until the dust settles a bit. The basic story is that one or two offices of police/special services departments in Khanabad were attacked by a group of armed men who fluctuate in number from five two to twenty and are either “unknown persons” or “members of the IMU.”

Injuries range from a few dead to a few injured to no one even injured (the Uzbek government revised their original brief at around 20:00 local time). It’s a story to watch: so far you can read about it on the BBC. Kommersant (no story yet, just updates) and Ferghana.ru with sources from Ozodlik, Interfax, and their own stringers. Interestingly, the Russian version on Ferghana is not as complete as the English one, so I don’t know what’s going on there. The Uzbek version of Ferghana has some more coverage, including details about some Russian news sites getting blocked because of their coverage of the Khanabad events and about a big influx of police and military units into Andijan today to handle anymore possible attack.

Late in the evening local time, the Uzbek government announced that a suicide bomber had detonated himself in Andijan today at around 1400 hours, killing a policemen and wounding several civillians. This story has slowly been picked up by the various wire services (see comments below) but so far no articles have appeared that verify or update the information.

Please add links in comments as you see new stories, and I’ll try to update the post a little bit when I have a chance to read more.

Earlier during the day ITAR-TASS was reporting that the original Khanabad (Xonobod) attack had been on a customs/border post and that it was probably connected to criminal activities rather than terrorism. Unnamed diplomats in Tashkent downplayed the explosion as run-of-the-mill cross-border criminal activity. It may be significant that this ITAR-TASS story was one of the sources for the reports that were reportedly being actively blocked inside Uzbekistan. Of course a suicide bombing in Andijon the following afternoon (May 26) would seem to indicate otherwise, assuming the two events are connected.
