A Severe violent riot broke out in the city of Urumqi, capital of Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region on July 5th. At 20:00 p.m., the rioters take a series of crazy actions such as assault, vandalism, looting and arson wildly in Urumqi. Until 23:30 p.m., more than one hundred innocent citizens and one armed policeman were killed, over 1000 people injured. Besides, many vehicles are smashed and lots of shops are burned. This is undoubtedly a premeditated violent event instigated by foreign activists and organized and carried out by domestic relevant rioters.
