Palace of Unity, Dushanbe
In November 2007, a bomb was left in a plastic bag near a wall outside of the Palace, in an incident labelled by authorities as a terrorist act. A seventy-seven year old man, variously reported to be a janitor, a street sweeper, or a security guard, was the only victim; he was killed at 8:10 AM on 14 November 2007 when he picked up the plastic bag in which the bomb was contained, causing it to explode. The explosion also blew out many windows at the palace.
