U.S. Arrests Uzbek Suspect

DENVER — A Philadelphia man accused of being a member of an Islamist militant group that U.S. authorities say is seeking to overthrow the Uzbek government has been arrested on charges of conspiracy to provide support to a terrorist organization.

Bakhtiyor Jumayev, 45, was arrested late last week in Philadelphia on charges of supporting the Islamic Jihad Union. Federal authorities said Jumayev was a close friend of Jamshid Muhtorov, an Uzbek refugee in Denver who was arrested in January on a similar charge.


… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
