AKIPRESS.COM - A video provided to RFE/RL shows part of a group of foreign cyclists a day before they were targeted in a deadly attack on a highway in southern Tajikistan.

Four died and three were injured when they were run down by a car and stabbed while riding through the Pamir Mountains on July 29.

The Islamic State (IS) extremist group claimed responsibility for the attack that killed two Americans, a Swiss man, and a Dutch citizen. The first cyclist in the video shot in the city of Kulob on July 28 appears to be 56-year-old Rene Wokke from the Netherlands.
