Xinjiang Uighur Clash The Police Station Draws International Attention
Violent clashes between police and local ethnic groups took place in Kashgar, Xinjiang and were widely reported by Western mainstream media such as AFP and Reuters.
The Chinese state media revealed this violence first.
Xinjiang government news agency, Tianshan News, reported that on Nov. 16, nine mobsters with knives and axes attacked a police station at Bachu county, killing two policemen.
The nine people were gunned down on the site.
Reuters quoted the World Uyghur Congress the spokesman Dilxat Raxit saying that the last violence occurred after the police used electric battons to beat Uighurs, who went to protest at the police station, and then shot a protester dead.
Dilxat told Taiwan state news agency, CNA, that since the crash at Tiananmen Square, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has enhanced controls on Uighurs with shooting to suppress any protests.
He said that the repression has turned so provocative that the Uighurs don't feel safe even sitting at home. The Uighurs' tolerance has reached the limit.
Conflicts can easily be set off.
Dilxat called on the international community to take prompt action to stop the CCP shooting the Uighur protesters .
