      TASHKENT, Uzbekistan - A woman blew herself up in
      Uzbekistan's central Bukhara region Thursday, killing
      a man and critically injuring herself, police said.


      The blast occurred around 4 p.m. at a two-story
      apartment building, and police were investigating at
      the scene, said a duty officer in the Bukhara regional
      police department who spoke on condition of anonymity.

      She said officials were looking at possible links to a
      string of attacks that have struck Uzbekistan over the
      past week. Police relased no other details.

      The blast occurred in the same area as an explosion at
      an alleged terrorist bomb workshop that killed 10
      people Sunday night. Days of violence followed.

      On Thursday, an Uzbek anti-terror official said
      Thursday was linked to al-Qaida, the first time the
      Uzbek government has directly accused the terror
      network headed by Osama bin Laden (news - web sites).

      Including the latest explosion, at least 44 people
      have died in attacks, mostly alleged terrorists.

      Ilya Pyagay, the Interior Ministry's deputy
      anti-terrorism chief, said earlier that operations
      were continuing to capture suspected terrorists.

      "These are Wahhabis who belong to one of the branches
      of the international al-Qaida terror group," Pyagay
      told The Associated Press, referring to the strict
      branch of Islam in which bin Laden was raised. "These
      are bandits who planned these attacks long in
      advance."

      The unrest is the first to hit this Central Asian
      nation since it became the United States' key ally in
      the region after the Sept. 11 attacks. Hundreds of
      U.S. troops are housed at a military base near the
      Afghan border.
