Eleven people were killed in an attack on a police station in China's restive Xinjiang, state media reported Sunday at a time of heightened tensions in the region following a fiery attack in Beijing.

Nine attackers and two auxiliary police officers were killed in the incident Saturday in Serikbuya township, near the historic Silk Road city of Kashgar, the official Xinhua new agency said, quoting local police.

Xinhua said the attackers were armed with knives and axes and that two other police officers were also injured. The agency gave no further details.

News flash for gun control supporters: even in countries where private gun ownership is banned, violence and murder occur. Violent people can commit violence and mass murder with other weapons. And it sounds like the Chinese police probably used guns to protect themselves from the violent attackers. Guns can save lives after all.

This actually appears to be a Mohammedan story.
Dilxat Raxit, a spokesman for the World Uyghur Congress, a Munich-based advocacy group, said a clash erupted after a Uighur youth was shot dead, with the eight others subsequently being killed.
Uygher = Mohammedan

China has around 23 million Muslims. It will be interesting to see how they deal with their Muslim issues.

Why does this sound like the plot to a movie I saw in the 70’s? (Well, actually 200 movies I saw in the 70’s)

China has confiscated Uygher territory and treated them like N-words.

There are consequences to things like that.

China, like Russia, conducted its imperialism on nearby lands - instead of “overseas” as many European imperiums did, always claiming it was done for “civilization” when in reality it was done for “Han Chinese” civilization.
