Hi There! Well theres a lot of tension there. I wouldnt want to say 10000 went exactly but take a quick look at this link....
Suggests that theres 43 missing and the Police claim to have 1500 in detention.
You cant really rule out people moving from the area either but then again, and i dont really want to say it but is there a possibility of ethnic
clensing of sorts?
"Among the Uighurs who have settled in south-eastern China, it is hard to find anyone prepared to talk openly about life in the Han-majority
country." and "Almost 200 people, most of them Han Chinese, were killed in violence with ethnic Uighurs in Urumqi." from the BBC news site.
The main ethnic division: 45% Uighur, 40% Han Chinese
From what ive read TV and Radio from with in the country is censored and to be honest the majority of the infomation i can find is from the
Theres even a report about someone going across the border to watch TV to find out whats happening.
There isnt even "much" coverage in the news here.
Seems some news is not as important compared to "REALITY TV."
