BEIJING - A clash at a police station that left at least four people dead in western China's restive Xinjiang region was "an organized terrorist attack", a government official was quoted saying in state media on Tuesday.

Police in Xinjiang gunned down several rioters who attacked a police station, Xinhua said on Tuesday, the worst violence Xinjiang has experienced in about a year.

Hou Hanmin, chief of the regional information office, said it was "an organized terrorist attack," according to the Global Times, a popular tabloid owned by the Chinese Communist Party's mouthpiece, the People's Daily.
