There has been a series of bomb attacks on a police station and commercial buildings in the Chinese province of Xinjiang, state media has reported. Witnesses reported that the explosions had been followed by sporadic gunfire, and that troops had been deployed.
World Uighur Congress spokesman Dilxat Raxit told the BBC that the Chinese government was responsible for the latest blasts because of what he called repressive policies in Xinjiang.
"In order to stop the East Turkestan situation getting worse, I urge the international community to exert pressure on China to immediately stop its systematic repressive government policies," he said.
Yet again, all is NOT calm at China. The situation in China is not as glamorous and grand as the Opening Ceremony would have us believe. The Uighur separatists are kicking their campaign aganist China into high gear because for years China has occupied their country and violated their Human Rights... the same thing China is doing to Tibet.
