Weibo user @公孙宇的世界 has posted this image of a notice from the Karamay Public Security Bureau concerning yesterday’s unrest in Turpan, Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region:

The media have already been silenced on the Xinjiang incident!

At 5:50 [a.m.] on June 26, simultaneous violent terrorist attacks occurred at six locations in a village in Shanshan County, Turpan, including a police station, a community [government] office, and civilian workers’ quarters.

Over ten police officers and others were killed. Currently, over 20 thugs have been shot dead at the scene, three have been arrested (all are injured), and the rest are at large.
