Tentative Peace as Tajik Rebels Disarm

By Shahodat Saibnazarova











The fighting seems to be over in the Badakhshan province of southeast Tajikistan, although it is far from clear how the region moves forward from here. (For the latest on this story, see Tajik Rebels Lay Down Arms in Badakhshan.)

Shahodat Saibnazarova is IWPR Radio Editor in Tajikistan.

The audio programme, in Tajik and Russian, went out on national radio stations in Tajikistan, as part of IWPR project work funded by the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
