Uighur Man Stabbed to Death in South China: Report

A Uighur man has been stabbed in Shenzhen, Reuters reports:

The ethnic Uighur man was attacked by a Han Chinese man in a restaurant in Shenzhen, a city close to Shaoguan in Guangdong province where a massive brawl broke out at a factory between a group of Han Chinese and Uighur workers from Xinjiang last June, the South China Morning Post reported.

The Shaoguan incident triggered serious ethnic rioting in Xinjiang’s capital Urumqi when Uighurs attacked Han Chinese, killing at least 197 people.

“I can’t say the suspect was targeting Uighurs. But this is a traumatizing experience for me. We will return to Xinjiang once police finish questioning,” the Uighur owner of the Xinjiang barbeque restaurant was quoted as saying by the paper.

Seven Han Chinese men were arrested and reportedly fired from their jobs afterwards.
