Chinese police kill 'religious extremist'
(12-24 15:25)

Authorities in the southwestern province of Guangxi say police shot one person dead and detained 21 others when they confronted "religious extremists'' trying to illegally cross into Vietnam.
A statement Tuesday on the official website for the city of Chong Zuo does not identify the religion, but Chinese authorities usually blame religious extremism for violence involving members of the Muslim ethnic minority of Uighurs. Beijing has also warned that religious extremists want to leave China to train with militant groups.
The Chong Zuo government says police, after receiving a tip the group was about to enter Vietnam through the border town of Pingxiang, ambushed the group and their two vehicles on Sunday. It says one person stabbed at a policeman but was shot dead immediately. --AP
