epa01785618 An angry crowd belonging to the Chinese Uyghur Moslem miniority try to grab hold of a police officer during new protests in Urumqi, China, 07 July 2009. Authorities said at least 140 people were killed and over 800 injured when Muslim Uighurs rioted in its restive Xinjiang region in some of the deadliest ethnic unrest to have hit the country for decades. The violence in the regional capital Urumqi on July 5 involved thousands of people, and triggered an enormous security crackdown across Xinjiang where tensions have long simmered amid Uighur claims of repressive Chinese rule.
