An attack in Xinjiang amid further crackdown on Uighurs

  • Armed police out in full force after deadly Xinjiang terror attack / SCMP
    Three knife-wielding attackers, identified anecdotally as part of the Uighur ethnic minority group, killed five and wounded five residents of Pishan County in far-western Xinjiang Province. Police on high alert now patrol every 10 to 20 meters in Pishan, SCMP reports. The last year has seen an intensification of the police state in Xinjiang under its new provincial Party boss, Chen Quanguo 陈全国. For more on the state of affairs for Uighurs in Xinjiang, see a detailed roundup published earlier in the month by the Jamestown Foundation.
  • China’s military progress challenges Western dominance, says IISS / Deutsche Welle
    A new report from the London-based International Institute for Strategic Studies claims that China is reaching “near-parity” with Western countries in military technology, particularly air power. Though China remains far behind the United States in military spending, it has comfortably claimed the number two spot and is now far ahead of any single European country. Advanced Chinese air-to-air and nuclear-enabled missiles, as well as the nation’s striking advances in “intelligent” weaponry, have recently received much attention.
