China imprisons 113 on terror crimes in Xinjiang
World | incidents | 11:25, 30 June 2014 | 948

AKIPRESS.COM - A government-run news site says Chinese courts in the far west region of Xinjiang imprisoned 113 people last week for terrorism or other charges, reports Voice of America.

Tian.net said in a report Sunday that regional courts in the Kashgar area held open sessions on Wednesday to sentence the 113, including four who received life terms.

The resource-rich area, home to Muslim minority Uighurs, has seen a rise in violence in recent months, leading Beijing to launch a year-long crackdown on what it calls terrorism in the region.

At least 380 people have been detained in the last month in the crackdown on violence in Xinjiang.
