(05-22 13:19)

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. --AFP
