The Uighurs of Xinjing - 22 May 2014
China has blamed a series of knife and bomb attacks in recent months in the troubled Xinjiang province on separatist militants. Xinjing, resource-rich and strategically located on the borders of central Asia, is the traditional home of the ethnic Muslim Uighur who speak a Turkic language and are culturally distinct from China's ethnic Han majority. They make up about 45% of the region's population and militant separatists, fearing erosion of their traditional culture from an influx of Han Chinese, are seeking to form their own state called East Turkestan.

An ethnic Uighur woman stands on the side of a road as Chinese paramilitary police ride on a truck on a main street in Urumqi, China's Xinjiang Autonomous Region July 9, 2009. The passionate anger of weekend riots gave way to cold bitterness on both sides of the ethnic divide in China's strife-torn Muslim region of Xinjiang on Thursday, and was likely to last long after the troops go.

A muslim girl points her toy pistol at boy in a Uighur neighbourhood of Urumqi in China's Xinjiang Autonomous Region July 10, 2009. Security forces have imposed control over Urumqi, but the afternoon prayers on Friday were testing the government's ability to contain Uighur anger after Han Chinese, China's predominant ethnic group, attacked Uighur neighbourhoods on Tuesday.

An uneasy calm continued on Monday in China's riot-hit Urumqi where 184 people died in ethnic violence a week ago, though the official tally of dead could rise, a regional official indicated on Sunday.

An ethnic Uighur man plays with his grandson in the old district of Kashgar city, in Xinjiang province August 4, 2011. The biggest threat to China's grip on its ethnically divided far western frontier comes from homegrown anger exploding in violence, not from Pakistan-based terrorists officials have blamed for the latest bloodshed. China said ringleaders of the separatist "East Turkestan Islamic Movement" (ETIM) who trained in Pakistan orchestrated the assault on Sunday that killed six in Kashgar city, Xinjiang region, where many Muslim Uighurs resent the presence of Han Chinese people.

An Uighur vendor cuts meat at a street market in Kashgar, Xinjiang province August 3, 2011. The deserted streets and shuttered shops in the usually bustling Chinese areas of Kashgar city on Wednesday stand as testament to the splintered ethnic lines in the western region of Xinjiang. Days after Uighur assailants stormed a restaurant, killed the owner and a waiter, then hacked four people to death on a nearby street over the weekend, Han Chinese residents -- the country's predominant ethnic group but a minority in Kashgar -- remained on edge.
