Uzbeks Celebrate Independence Day As They Await News On Karimov


Uzebekistan celebrated 25 years of independence, but festivities were subdued as Uzbeks awaited news about their ailing leader. President Islam Karimov was reportedly hospitalized on August 28. One of his daughters wrote via social media that the 78-year-old leader was still alive and could recover from what she said was a brain hemorrhage. (RFE/RL's Uzbek Service)
