China Daily (Canada) - - FRONT PAGE -

Po­lice have bro­ken up 181 ter­ror­ist groups over the past year as the re­sult of a sweep­ing crack­down in the Xin­jiang Uygur au­ton­o­mous re­gion, lo­cal au­thor­i­ties said.

Ac­cord­ing to the re­gional gov­ern­ment’s pub­lic­ity of­fice, 96.2 per­cent of the groups were traced be­fore they were able to com­mit crimes and 112 sus­pects sur­ren­dered to po­lice.

The anti-ter­ror­ism cam­paign was launched a day af­ter the bomb­ing of a mar­ket in the re­gional cap­i­tal of Urumqi that killed 39 peo­ple in May last year.
