Attack In China Leaves 15 People Dead

SHAFAQNA (Shia International News Association) – An attack in China has left 15 people dead and several others injured, according to the state news agency Xinhua.

The attackers used vehicles, knives and explosives in the assault in the western Xinjiang region, in what officials have called a terrorist attack.

Eleven of those killed were described as the  “mobsters” who drove into a street of food stalls, threw explosive devices and stabbed people.

Similar attacks have claimed dozens of lives in Xinjiang over the past year, where members of the region’s Muslim Uighur minority group battle what they say is repressive Chinese government rule.
