Bomb Attack Kills 15 In Western China

15 Killed as Explosives Are Hurled at Food Court in Xinjiang -- Bloomberg

Fifteen people, including 11 attackers, were killed and 14 hurt as a group in vehicles hurled explosives at a food court yesterday in the latest flare-up in China’s Xinjiang province, the official Xinhua News Agency reported.

The group randomly hacked people after the blasts in Shache County, Xinhua reported today. Police on patrol nearby evacuated the crowds and killed 11 of the attackers, the news agency said.

President Xi Jinping has blamed Uighur separatists, the Muslim ethnic minority that makes up about 45 percent of Xinjiang’s population, for a series of bombings and attacks in the province and across the country. More than 300 terror suspects have been arrested in the past six months as part of a nationwide crackdown.
