Chinese police shoot dead 13 attackers in Xinjiang
By Adam Jourdan SHANGHAI (Reuters) - Chinese police shot dead 13 attackers in the country's restive Xinjiang region, after the group drove a car into a Kashgar police station and detonated an explosive device, the official Xinhua news agency reported on Saturday. Three police officers were "lightly wounded" in the attack on Saturday morning, but there were no casualties among the public, the news agency said citing the local government. "The gangsters drove a vehicle to ram the building of the public security bureau of Yecheng County in southern Xinjiang and set off explosives," it said. China has been cracking down after a spate of recent attacks centred around the far-western region of Xinjiang.
