German prosecutors last week charged an Afghani man with recruiting for the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan — a case that underscores how the Central Asian radical group has become an international jihadist movement with links to the Taliban and al Qaeda.
"IMU videos often mention the need to gain operational experience in Afghanistan or in the northern Caucasus," said Ms. Gevorgyan. "Some of the more ardent supporters will go."
"One of the group's early names was the Islamic Turkestan Movement, referring to all Turkic peoples and nations in Central Asia," said Lilt Gevorgyan, an analyst at IHS Global Insight, an economic analysis and marketing intelligence firm in London.
