We will recall that according to Tajik law enforcement authorities, two terrorist acts were prevented in Khujand on January 21 as combat engineers defused a bomb in a car and another car packed with explosives was sunk in the Syrdarya River.  Two suspect cars were found abandoned outside the buildings of the Sughd police directorate and the State Committee for National Security (SCNS)’s office for Sughd in Khujand Friday night, at around 11:00 pm.  Both cars with forged transit number plates were packed with explosives.  The combat engineers defused a bomb in Opel left outside the police directorate, but they could not open doors of Volkswagen Passat left outside the SCNS’s office and it was decided to sink the car in the Syrdarya River.
