Tajik Internet Cafe

MOSCOW -- Dushanbe Internet enthusiasts have a new venue to sip tea and surf the web after the opening of the Tajik capital's first Internet cafe, Interfax has reported.

"We have set ourselves a goal to significantly broaden the local Internet audience and ease access to world information flows for people who don't have the chance to obtain a computer and use a permanent connection to the World Wide Web," Interfax quoted Telecom Technology president Shavkhat Khalilov as saying in Dushanbe.

Khalilov said only 400 Internet users were registered in Dushanbe.
