Tajik President Imomali Rakhmon launched an offensive in the
autonomous Gorno-Badakhshan region on Tuesday against supporters
of Tolib Ayombekov, who is accused of killing a security service

Authorities sealed the border after government troops
captured eight Afghan militants who were fighting for Ayombekov.
Tajik officials feared Taliban-linked fighters were crossing

spokesman for Tajikistan’s border guards, told Reuters.
