Looks like the saga of syringe attacks in Xinjiang is far from over. Police detained another 75 people after a number of new syringe attacks, just days after three Uighers were sentenced for previous attacks. The recent attacks have spread out of Urumqi and around Xinjiang, with reports of stabbing from Kashgar to Turpan. Worse, the deputy head of police in Urumqi said that two detainees admitted their aim was to “undermine ethnic unity in Xinjiang and to create ethnic hatred”. We worry about the ramifications this will have for racial tensions that are already boiling in Xinjiang.
