    British military Land Rovers used in Uzbekistan massacre

    The issue will apparently be raised in parliament, the Guardian has this report:

    Oxfam said yesterday that photographs analysed by the Control Arms Campaign, a group pressing for stricter controls, show that British military Land Rovers were used by government troops in Andijan on the day they massacred up to 500 men, women, and children. The government classifies these Land Rovers, which are armour-plated and can be fitted with machine-gun hatches, as military vehicles. The Foreign Office told the Guardian earlier this month that only one had been exported to Uzbekistan and that was for a private company to transport gold bullion. One possibility is that the Land Rovers were exported from Turkey where a company, Otokar, assembles them under licence.
