China blames terrorists for deadly Xinjiang attack; 15 dead, 14 injured


Police officers stand guard in Xinjiang. The region has seen a series of attacks in recent months.

Police officers stand guard in Xinjiang. The region has seen a series of attacks in recent months.

The following is based on reports in Chinese media:

Singtao Daily says in its report today that at 1:30pm (11:30am according to SCMP), a group of terrorists threw explosives at, and hacked with knives and axes, innocent people at Meishi (meaning tasty food) Street, Shache County, Kashgar, Xinjiang.

The policemen patrolling nearby streets rushed to the scene, surrounded the terrorists and killed 11 of them. Neither Singtao nor SCMP mentions in their report whether any terrorist has been captured alive. Singtao says 39 have been killed or wounded in the heading of its report but its report only mentions 15 deaths and 14 injuries.

That is confirmed by SCMP report on the same incident.

Local police are investigating the case while no organisation has claimed responsibility.

Both newspapers described Shache as a country often attacked by terrorists. The most serious recent attack took place in July when 37 innocent people and 59 terrorists were killed.

SCMP says in its report on the attack today, “Two days after the July attack, Jume Tahir, the government-appointed chief imam of the country’s biggest mosque in Kashgar, was hacked to death after leading morning prayers.

Beijing has blamed both attacks on Xinjiang separatists, whom the authorities said received terrorism training. Rights groups and exiled Uygurs dispute the terrorism label and argue the violence is the result of repression by the authorities.

“Two teenagers were sentenced to death over the killing of the imam, and a third man was given life imprisonment in September. More than 20 people responsible for the attack in July were sentenced to death by a Kashgar court in October.”

Chan Kai Yee's new book: SPACE ERA STRATEGY: The Way China Beats The US An eye-opening book that tells the truth how the US is losing to China. The US is losing as it adopts the outdated strategy of Air-Sea Battle while China adopts the space era strategy to pursue integrated space and air capabilities: It is losing due to its diplomacy that has given rise to Russian-Chinese alliance. US outdated strategy has enabled China to catch up and surpass the US in key weapons: Hypersonic weapons (HGV) that Pentagon regards as the weapon that will dominate the world in the future. Aerospaceplane in China’s development of space-air bomber that can engage enemy anywhere in the world within an hour and destroy an entire aircraft carrier battle group within minutes. Anti-satellite (ASAT) weapons, anti-ASAT weapons, stealth aircrafts, drones, AEW&C, etc. The book gives detailed descriptions of China’s weapon development based on information mainly from Chinese sources that the author monitors closely. U.S. Must Not Be Beaten by China! China is not a democracy. Its political system cannot prevent the emergence of a despotic leader or stop such a leader when he begins to bring disasters to people. A few decades ago, Mao Zedong, the worst tyrant in world history did emerge and bring disasters to Chinese people. He wanted to fight a nuclear war to replace capitalism with communism but could not bring nuclear holocaust to world people as China was too weak and poor at that time. If a despot like Mao Zedong emerges when China has surpassed the US in military strength, world people will suffer the misery experienced by Chinese people in Mao era. China surpassing the US in GDP is not something to worry about as China has the heavy burden to satisfy its huge population, but China surpassing the US in military strength will be world people’s greatest concern if China remains an autocracy. US people are of much better quality than Chinese people. What they lack is a wise leader to adopt the correct strategy and diplomacy and the creative ways to use its resources in developing its military capabilities. I hope that with the emergence of a great leader, the US can put an end to its decline and remain number one in the world.
