#AceNewsReport – Nov.08: Local authorities confirmed there had been a riot at the prison, but provided no other information. Khujand lies around 300 km (186 miles) north of the Tajik capital, Dushanbe: According to an interior ministry official not authorized to comment publicly, the riot started when one inmate regarded by the authorities as a member of the Islamic State militant group attacked a prison guard #AceNewsDesk reports

The prison called in security forces to help quash the riot, which had now ended, said a security official speaking on the condition of anonymity: Tajikistan, an impoverished Central Asian country, routinely reports detentions and convictions of Islamist militants. Last July, Islamic State claimed responsibility for an attack which killed four Western tourists in Tajikistan.
