June or July 1993, in an unknown place, Tajikistan
Azimov, a reporter at the state-owned, Tajik-language magazine Maktabi Sovieti, disappeared in June or July 1993. Tajik opposition sources in Russia and the United States say he was killed by one of several small paramilitary groups loosely affiliated with the People's Front.
