Fifteen killed in "terrorist attack" in China's Xinjiang

BEIJING - Fifteen people have been killed and 14 others wounded during a "terrorist attack" in China's mostly Muslim Xinjiang region, China's official news agency said Saturday.

Xinjiang is frequently hit by unrest sparked by fierce tensions between China's ethnic Han majority and the Turkic-speaking Muslim Uighurs, with authorities regularly blaming Uighur militants for violence in the region.
