Powell Offers U.S. Help in Uzbekistan's Terrororism Investigation

MARCH 30, 2004 - Posted at 5:16 p.m. CDT

 

WASHINGTON, DC - The Bush administration is offering to help Uzbekistan investigate three days of terrorist violence, even though the country has resisted U.S. appeals for democracy.

Secretary of State Colin Powell made the offer in a telephone conversation with Uzbek's foreign minister today.  A State Departmente spokesman says the U.S. Embassy will follow up on the offer and weigh any requests for assistance.

Officials declined to comment on whether the U.S. is helping with surveillance or other aspects of security.  Nor did they provide any details on the bombs used in recent attacks.

More than 40 people have died since the violence began on Sunday.
