3 Blasts in Tajikistan




DUSHANBE, Tajikistan -- Three explosions hit Tajikistan's capital Dushanbe on Monday, near the presidential palace, the tax collection headquarters and the Russian Embassy, officials said.


No casualties were immediately reported, and damage was reportedly minimal.


Tajikistan has been wracked with violence despite a 1997 peace agreement that ended a five-year civil war between the hard-line government and mostly Islamic opposition.
