So far the terrorists have been unable to get anywhere near the Olympics, but they have managed to strike again in Xinjiang. According to AFP:
A series of bomb blasts followed by gunfire rocked a town in China’s mainly Muslim northwestern region of Xinjiang Sunday leaving at least two people dead, state media said.
The explosions shook the town of Kuqa between 3:20 am (1920 GMT Saturday) and 4:00 am (2000 GMT), Xinhua news agency said. It said two people were killed but that the death toll could rise.
The report did not say who was responsible, but the attack follows repeated threats by Muslim militants in Xinjiang to disrupt the Beijing Olympic Games and comes after an attack in the region last week left 16 police officers dead.
Police are searching for suspects, local sources said. At least four or five suspects were killed or injured during the process, the sources said.
Killed or injured in what process? A search?
The process of a police investigation in Xinjiang must be a little more — ahem — proactive than we are used to in the West.
