The day I left Tashkent, There were 3 suicide bombers exploding the american and israelit embassy also exploding the special services of uzbekistan. I had to be evacuated from the place I was, and after on the airport the security was really tight since I was taking a hig risk flight to Iran's capital Tehran.

Warning from Lonely Planet Website:

Terrorist activity has escalated in areas around the country's capital Tashkent. On March 28, 2004 a bomb exploded in a house where large amounts of explosives for manufacturing were found. Since then three explosions have occurred and there have been attacks on police checkpoints.

Travellers are advised to check travel warnings and stay aware of the situation.

In the border areas near Afghanistan, Tajikistan and Kyrgystan violence can still flare and areas are mined. It is advised that travellers exercise caution when travelling to these areas.

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
