Here we go. Now what do we make of this? We cannot deduce from the little information in this article just who is doing what to whom. Only once in the article is the word Muslim mentioned, and there is nothing at all referencing Islam or the tenets driving the Uighurs to act. The disconnect between real reporting and propaganda to hide Islamic hegemony and the installation of sharia law grows by the minute, and there is very little, short of another successful attack by Islam that will shake this PC gone wild.
Remember that whenever you see the above words in a story or article on Islam or Muslims, their meaning in context of the piece written will be 180 degrees opposite from the reality.

Deadly violence hits China's restive Xinjiang
Knife-wielding attackers killed 13 people in China's Xinjiang region and another five were shot dead by police as a wave of violence swept the ethnically-torn area, state media and officials said Sunday.
The unrest occurred in the ancient Silk Road city of Kashgar in two separate attacks, and local residents said Sunday the city centre was under lockdown, with security forces patrolling the streets.
Xinjiang has seen several outbreaks of ethnic violence in recent years as the mainly Muslim Uighur minority bridles under what it regards as oppression by the government and the unwanted immigration of ethnic Han Chinese.
Earlier this month, more than 20 people were killed in a clash with police in the remote city of Hotan.
In the first attack on Saturday evening, seven people were killed and 28 others hurt at a night market by two attackers with knives, one of whom was later killed in violence, the authorities said.
Hou Hanmin, spokeswoman for the government of the northwestern region, told AFP the attackers were both Uighurs, adding the suspect who was still alive had been detained.
"The case is still under investigation so I don't have more information," she said.
On Sunday six people were killed by "armed terrorists", two of them in a restaurant and four of them "hacked... arbitrarily" outside, the official Xinhua news agency said, adding 12 civilians and three policemen were injured.
As opposed to "hacked...with intent".
It had earlier reported an explosion, but a follow-up report said only that the restaurant had been set on fire.
Police shot dead four suspects allegedly involved in the attack and detained four others, one of whom later died in hospital, Xinhua said, while another four were on the run.
Dilxat Raxit, a spokesman for the Germany-based World Uyghur Congress -- an exile group -- said security forces had shot dead six people and injured nine others on Sunday.
The government spokeswoman was not available when contacted about Sunday's unrest.
