Report: Six killed in China's Xinjiang after explosions

BEIJING - Two men wielding knives attacked a truck driver and then a crowd of people following two explosions in China's far west, killing six people before one attacker was killed and the other captured, government-run media reported Sunday.
The blasts and attack occurred late on Saturday in the city of Kashgar in the Xinjiang region near China's border with Tajikistan, according to, a Xinjiang government-run website, and the state-run news agency Xinhua.
One of the blasts was from a minivan while another occurred in a food market, Xinhua said.
Xinjiang is home to many Uighurs, a mostly Muslim Turkic-speaking people native to the region, many of whom resent the growing presence of majority Han Chinese who have moved there and some groups have campaigned for independence.
