China says Xinjiang police station attacked by axe, knife-wielding mob, 11 dead
Eleven people were killed and two injured in China's troubled far-west region of Xinjiang when a group of people armed with axes and knifes attacked a police station on Saturday, state media reported on Sunday. "Nine mobs holding knives and axes attacked a police station at Bachu county, killing two auxiliary policemen and injuring another two policemen," according to a report on xinhuanet.com, which cited a web report from the Xinjiang government. Many Uighurs call Xinjiang East Turkestan, and the government often blames the frequent outbreaks of violence there on extremists agitating for an independent state. China's domestic security chief in November blamed a Muslim Uighur separatist group for a fatal vehicle crash in Beijing's Tiananmen Square in which five died.
