Dozens Dead in Attack in China's Xinjiang

MGN Online

BEIJING (AP) -- China's state-run news agency says at least 31 people have been killed and more than 90 wounded in an early morning attack on a busy street market in the capital of the country's volatile northwestern region of Xinjiang (shihn-jahng).

The official Xinhua (shihn-wah) News Agency says the assailants plowed through crowds of shoppers in off-road vehicles and threw explosives out the window before crashing head-on.

It's the bloodiest in a series of violent incidents blamed on radical separatist Muslims.
