A group of foreigners traveling through Tajikistan by bicycle were rammed by a van on July 30, leaving four of them dead, including two Americans, and three others injured, one of whom was stabbed during the attack.

Tajikistan security forces identified the attackers and, in attempting to arrest them, killed four. One suspected attacker was detained. Daesh claimed the men were members of that group.
