CAIRO (Reuters) - Islamic State claimed responsibility for a prison riot in Tajikistan last month in which 32 people were killed, the militant group's online publication said on Thursday.

Islamic State said in its weekly Al-Nabaa newspaper that the "attackers are of the caliphate soldiers". It did not provide evidence to support its claim.
