MOSCOW, May 13 (RIA Novosti) - Disorders in Andizhan in eastern Uzbekistan are a well-planned action, said a Russian expert in the fight against international terrorism. He preferred to remain anonymous.

"The primary analysis of these events shows that the seizure of the police station was well planned and prepared," the expert told RIA Novosti.

In his opinion, the seizure of state institutions was a classical sabotage operation.

"A group of well-armed militants on several cars attacked the police station to seize weapons and release their accomplices from jail," the expert noted.

Speaking about the actions of Uzbekistan's authorities, RIA Novosti's interlocutor said, "[Uzbekistan's President] Karimov arrival in rebellious Andizhan let the law enforcement bodies take control over the situation."

RIA Novosti reached a resident of Andizhan on the phone. In his words, the situation in the town was rather calm. There was shooting in the morning but it ceased.

The broadcasting of Russian TV and radio channels was stopped but mobile communications are operating.
