Uzbekistan detains 21 on suspicion of Syrian militant links

Uzbek police have detained 21 people suspected of being linked to an Islamist militant group operating in Syria.

Police said the detained men were under the “ideological influence” of another Uzbek man who was a member of the Katiba al-Tawhid wal-Jihad group (banned in Russia) comprised mostly of Central Asians, Reuters reported.

They planned to finance the group and join it, police said in a statement.
