Show of force in Xinjiang sends hardline message

"
Authorities in Xinjiang staged a massive show of force in an antiterror exercise and rallied police for a public oath-taking ceremony to ensure stability in the region just days after attackers ran a car into a county government compound. Presiding over the events on Saturday was the region’s Communist Party chief, Chen Quan­guo, who was transferred to the region in recent months and was well known for his hardline policies during his previous posting in Tibet."
