China blamed Pakistani terrorists training camps for the violence in Chinese Xinjiang province which left many killed. A statement by the Kashgar municipal government said militants trained by the ‘East Turkistan Islamic Movement’ in Pakistan were responsible for the recent flare up in violence.
“Initial probe has revealed that the heads of the group had learned skills of making explosives and firearms in Pakistan before entering into Xinjiang to organise terrorist activities,” it said.
There was panic in Kashgar city after militants attacked a restaurant on Sunday evening before setting it on fire. The incident left six civilians and five militants dead. The attack came after nine people were killed in another incident on Saturday.
While five ‘suspects’ were shot dead by police on Sunday night, four others were caught. Fifteen persons, including three policemen, were injured in the attack, Xinhua reported.
Finally, China admitted that its close ally “Pakistan” is a hub of terrorism. Most of the terror organizations have their base in this neighbouring country and their main aim is to terrorize and kill people around the world.
