China marks western Xinjiang as main terror threat – Benjamin Kang Lim

From Reuters:

Separatists in China’s far-flung, predominantly Muslim region of Xinjiang are the main terror threat to the country, killing 160 people and wounding 440 over the past decade, officials were quoted on Tuesday as saying.

Beijing keeps a tight grip on northwestern , which shares a border with Afghanistan, Pakistan, three former Soviet republics, Russia and Mongolia and where ethnic Uighur militants have been struggling for decades to set up an independent state called East Turkestan.
