Real Terrorism in Uzbekistan

Two female suicide bombers killed at least 19 people in Uzbekistan.
Here’s how Reuters reported it.

TASHKENT, Uzbekistan (Reuters) – At least 19 people were killed in a series of explosions and shoot-outs in Uzbekistan in “terrorist” actions aimed at splitting the U.S.-led anti-terror coalition, officials said Monday.

Muslims lash out at the world by blowing up other Muslims at random. And Reuters still can’t type the word terrorist without putting the damn thing in quotation marks.
I guess we should cut them some slack when they say Jews, Americans and Iraqis are killed by “terrorists.” They just don’t believe terrorism is real. Still to this day.
And look at the reason why these attacks supposedly happened. To split the US-led anti-terrorist coalition. That’s what the piece says.
Two paragraphs later, the same piece said this.

Hizb ut-Tahrir, which aims to set up a pan-Islamic state that would include post-Soviet Central Asia, and the austere Wahhabi school of Sunni Islam are both outlawed in Uzbekistan.

Any possibility that that was the reason for the attacks? I’m just asking.
