MUSLIM UIGHURS

FILE – This Sept. 28, 2001, file photo of Muslim Uighur men emerging from the Id Kah mosque after prayers, in Kashgar, in China’s western Xinjiang province Friday, Sept. 28, 2001. This weekend’s bloody riot in China’s Muslim far west carries disturbing reminders of anti-Chinese violence in another troubled region — Tibet — and shows how heavy-handed rule and radical resistance are pushing unrest to new heights. The clash between ethnic Muslim Uighurs and China’s Han majority in Xinjiang that left at least 140 dead signaled a new phase in a region used to seeing bombings and assassinations by militant separatists but few mass protests.
