No details were given about what might have set off the violence near the city of Kashgar, although Xinjiang sees periodic outbreaks of anti-government violence by members of the region’s native Turkish Muslim Uighur ethnic group.

  1. “No details were given about what might have set off the violence near the city of Kashgar”

    According to the Zombie Judge the murder victims are at fault for causing the riots.

  2. good, and three cheers to China and the common sense they use to keep the backward crackpot Ughurs and Tibetians in line, The Chinese pump billions into these two areas for infrastructure to try to bring them into the 21st century…..
    These areas are hotbeds for extremists and easily accessable from Paki land and Afghanistan
    I wish the Chinese would just send in more military and bomb the mosques….
