BEIJING (AP) — China on Monday blamed Muslim extremists trained in Pakistan for an attack that killed six civilians in one of the most troubled ethnic regions where police later fatally shot five suspects.

Sunday's attack raised the death toll from weekend violence in the Silk Road city of Kashgar in China's far west to 18.

Kashgar is in Xinijang region, which has been tense since nearly 200 people were killed in fighting between Uighurs and Han Chinese in 2009 in Urumqi, the regional capital.

Kashgar's city government said in a statement posted on its website that an initial investigation showed members of the group behind Sunday's attack had trained in making explosives and firearms in Pakistan. It did not immediately offer any proof.

Seems a Ping Pong match of blame has been going about quite frequently as of late, between Iran and Pakistan,

Throw the world into a pot, and turn up the heat,
