Peace Corps Stays in Uzbekistan

From Wanderlustress:

"After a meeting at the American Embassy on Saturday, the Country Director and EMA Region Head of Security, determined that the recent bombings do not constitute a direct threat to volunteers. Our 'standfast' was lifted as of Sunday, and Peace Corps drove those of us who were in Tashkent home (except for those flying out West). "
