BEIJING (AFP) – A deadly weekend attack in China's restive Xinjiang region was masterminded by "terrorists" trained in Pakistan, the local government said Monday.



Fourteen people were killed in two attacks at the weekend in the ancient Silk Road city of Kashgar, and five alleged attackers were in turn shot dead by police in the wave of violence.


Another link to Pakistan? Ive lost track of how much stuff has been linked to Pakistan recently.

I think there was another "attack" last month in the same region. From what I gather from the few articles, these attacks are somewhat ethnic related.

More links.

So how long before Russia, China, India and the United States hold hands and stomp on Pakistan together. Would be a hell of a way to spend some bonding time together. Pakistan is going to find itself in an irreversibly sticky situation shortly if it can't contain itself.

china won't put up with this crap.

they think the internet is a threat, let alone foreigners killing their people.

Some people have been quite dismissive of me when I have stated that despite the normal public political rhetoric behind closed doors China is actually quite supportive of US policy in Pakistan.

Both China and Russian have their own problems with Islamic extremists some of whom have links to Pakistani training camps and The Taliban.

If there are many more instances like this then China may go public in their support of the US etc and would not be bothered at all about world opinion if they decided to take retaliatory action.

Recently Pakistan ceded some territory in Kashmir to China (contrary to the news China also has a part of Kashmir, however they ave been able to remain outside of the India - Pakistan issue).

This wast 6-12 months back...

What exactly is your point if you don't know what is going on over there???

Why is everyone commenting on stuff that has nothing to do with this little story???

Inquiring minds want to know...

Seriously...

Lots of other more important stuff going on in the world if you ask me...

Get real...

Please...

And why are you so interested and concerned about what other people are commenting on or discussing?

If I'm not interested in something I simply don't comment on it, who am I to comment on or judge other people?

So what exactly is your problem?
