Retro Russian cars parade on streets in Tajikistan


More than 30 retro Russian cars and motorcycles have driven through the streets in Dushanbe, the capital of Tajikistan, as part of a parade to celebrate capital city day.

Tajikistan became independent from the former Soviet Union more than 20 years ago - but some Tajiks still have a soft spot for the old Russian-made cars.

Karen Zarindast reports.
