Muslims Kill 22 In China

Twenty-two people were killed when four Uighur assailants armed with knives and explosives attacked a market in Xinjiang province last week, as ethnic tensions continued to worsen in the northwestern region.

The dead included police officers and the four attackers. The attack, on October 12th, took place at a farmers’ trading centre in Maralbeshi, or Bachu, county in the Kashgar prefecture, the US-based Radio Free Asia’s Uighur-language service reported. The wholesale food market is used predominantly by Han Chinese.
