China Marketplace Bombing Terrorist Attack Kills 31 Injures 94

Assailants in two SUVs plowed through shoppers while setting off explosives on a busy street market in China's volatile northwestern region of Xinjiang on Thursday, the local officials said, killing 31 people and injuring more than 90. The attack in the city of Urumqi was the bloodiest in a series of violent incidents that Chinese authorities have blamed on radical separatists from the country's Muslim Uighur minority. The Xinjiang regional government said in a statement that the early morning attack was "a serious violent terrorist incident of a particularly vile nature." The two vehicles crashed through barriers at 7:50 a.m., drove right into the crowds while setting off explosives, the statement said. The SUVs then crashed head-on and one of them exploded, the official Xinhua News Agency reported. It quoted an eyewitness as saying there were up to a dozen blasts in all.
