Summary/Abstract: There are a number of radical Islamic circles in Central Asia, such as Salafis, Jamiat-e Tablig or Hizb-ut Tahrir. However, due to their largely peaceful (non-combatant) character or marginal importance, they are not the subject of this study. The report is devoted to the activities of organized armed Islamic radicals from Central Asia, currently concentrated around two international terrorist organizations - the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan and the Islamic Jihad Union.
