Journalists warned about Andijan trial coverage

From Radio Free Europe:

Uzbekistan's Interior Ministry warned journalists today about their coverage of the trial of 15 alleged Islamist extremists accused over an uprising in the eastern province of Andijon.

In a statement, the ministry denounced a report that the defendants had been tortured prior to the Supreme Court trial that began on 20 September, when the men all pleaded guilty to leading an armed insurgency.

It said that the Interior Ministry is calling on journalists to strictly abide by journalistic ethics and principles and to wait until the decision of the court.
