Terror Attack In China Kills Dozens

Many other people were injured in the violence Monday in Shache county near the city of Kashgar, the official Xinhua News Agency said. It said the mob first attacked a police station and government offices in the township of Elixku before moving on to a neighbouring township, attacking civilians and smashing vehicles along the way.Read more.

"Uighuractivists say repressive Chinese cultural and religious
policies are fuelling resentment among Uighurs, along with a sense that
