China Clashes: 21 Reportedly Killed In Battle Between Authorities, Terrorist Gang



BEIJING A violent clash between authorities and assailants described as a terrorist gang left 21 people dead in China's restive northwestern region of Xinjiang, the local government said Wednesday.
Among the dead in the Tuesday afternoon fighting were 15 police officers (10 Uighurs, 3 Han Chinese, and 2 Mongols) and local government officials, the Xinjiang government propaganda office said in a news release. It said six assailants were killed on the spot and another eight were captured alive.
"Initial investigations show this was a gang plotting to carry out terrorist acts and the case is now being further cracked open," the release said.
A leading activist from the region's indigenous Turkic Muslim Uighur ethnic group questioned the official account, saying local sources said that police sparked the incident by shooting a Uighur youth during an illegal search of homes.
