It’s now been two days since the rioting in Xinjiang first began, and the official media is now stating that 1,434 people in the province have been arrested in connection to the unrest. According to the AP, Amnesty International has added its opinions to the matter, urging China to “fully account” for the deaths of those killed and an explanation for the mass detention of people. The death count is currently still at 156 and The Guardian reported that the majority of the 800 plus people injured are Han Chinese. Meanwhile, protests have spread out of Urumuqi, with over 200 people gathering at a mosque in Kashgar and more allegedly being organized in other Xinjiang cities. Al Jazeera’s Melissa K Chan has been sporadically tweeting what she’s seeing in Urumuqi – definitely worth looking at if you can get past the twitter block.
