At least 50 said killed in September Xinjiang attack as China warns on security

“At least 50 people died in an attack last month at a coal mine in China’s far-western Xinjiang, Radio Free Asia reported on Thursday, as a visiting senior leader warned that the security situation in the violence-prone region was “very serious”.

“The government says it faces a serious threat from Islamist militants and separatists in energy-rich Xinjiang, on the border of central Asia, where hundreds have died in violence in recent years.” (Coordination Center)
