Washington, D.C. – Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty’s (FE/RL) Abduqayum Qayumove, Radio Ozodi, is back online today following an Internet blackout that included its website, Facebook, and several other independent news sites. Authorities attributed the incident, which began on January 18, to “technical problems,” although Asia Plus reported the blackout was coordinated by Tajik authorities. This is the second time in six weeks that Radio Ozodi and major news and social media websites in Tajikistan have been blocked.
