Dozens of civilians were killed or injured in a terrorist attack on Monday morning in Shache County, northwest China’s Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region.

A gang armed with knives and axes attacked a police station and government offices, while some moved on to the nearby Huangdi Township, attacking civilians and smashing vehicles as they passed. Dozens of Uygur and Han civilians were killed or injured.

“Police officers at the scene shot dead dozens of members of the mob,” reported the Chinese official news agency, Xinhua.
