The Interior Ministry in Tajikistan says it has detained three suspected Islamist militants in connection with a recent suicide bombing that killed two police officers and wounded 25 others.

A ministry spokesman said the three suspects were all members of the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan, a militant group affiliated with Al-Qaeda that the United States has branded a terrorist organization.

The three militants are suspected of planning the September 3 attack, in which two suicide bombers drove a car packed with explosives into the gate of a regional police headquarters in the northern city of Khugand.

The attack was believed to be the first suicide bombing in the Central Asian country.
