31 dead in attack in China's Xinjiang: Xinhua

BEIJING - At least 31 people were killed and more than 90 injured Thursday when two vehicles ploughed into a market and explosives were thrown in China's restive Xinjiang region, the official Xinhua news agency reported.

Two off-road vehicles drove into a crowd in the regional capital Urumqi, with one of them exploding, Xinhua said, in what state-run media called the latest "serious terrorist incident" to hit Xinjiang, home to mostly Muslim Uighurs.
