Police in Shenyang, Liaoning province, have shot dead three suspected terrorists and arrested a fourth.
The three men, from Xinjiang, were waving long knives and chanting jihadist slogans when police opened fire at a rental home in a downtown area on Monday, the police bureau said.
The officers also arrested a 28-year-old woman, a Uygur from Xinjiang, who was injured in the shooting.
Police said more than 200 armed officers had been sent to the rental home to subdue the four, who were suspected of involvement in a “terrorist case” on June 12. A police statement did not say what the case involved, but said that in the past month 16 people had been arrested in connection with it.
