14 killed in violent attacks
PRESS TRUST OF INDIA
Beijing, July 31: At least 14 people including a Chinese police officer were killed in a spate of violent incidents in China's volatile Xinjiang province.
While seven people were killed in an attack by two 'rioters', who hijacked a bus and rammed into a crowd of people last night in Kashghar, located close to the Pakistan administered Kashmir (PaK), seven more were killed today.
Four suspects were shot and four others were caught by police today.
While three people, including a police officer, were also killed today, Chinese state-run Xinhua news agency reported.
It quoted witnesses as saying that the victims were hacked to death by the 'rioters'.
Police are hunting for four others following an eruption of violence, in which more than 10 pedestrians and police officers had been injured, the report said, providing very sketchy details.
The incident took place after at least seven people were killed by rioters last night in the same city.
