Tajiks Protest Raids

DUSHANBE, Tajikistan -- Tajikistan sent a formal protest to Uzbekistan on Wednesday over bombing raids it said were carried out by Uzbek planes on its territory in the last few days.

"The Tajik Foreign Ministry today sent a note of protest to Uzbekistan, which contains a protest against Uzbek planes invading Tajikistan's airspace and bomb attacks carried out by them on eastern regions of Tajikistan," a ministry source said.

The statement is the first official indication that unidentified fighter jets which had attacked Tajik territory daily between Saturday and Tuesday belonged to Uzbekistan.
