Uzbek officials said they had made a number of arrests in connection with three suicide bombings, one of which took place at the Israeli Embassy in Tashkent. The blast at the Israel Embassy last Friday killed two Uzbek security guards, and a third died in an attack on the U.S. Embassy in the former Soviet republic. A team of Israeli investigators traveled to Tashkent over the weekend to help in the probe.
