DUSHANBE (Reuter) - Gunbattles raged in suburbs of the Tajik capital yesterday with Islamic guerrillas stepping up hit- and-run attacks two days after the arrival of a new government in Dushanbe. The guerrillas set ablaze fuel storage tanks and fought with ex-Communist gunmen in the city's southern Islamic stronghold of Avul.
