Han Chinese seek revenge

Text size Aa Aa

Thousands of Han Chinese have taken to the streets to counter protests by Uighurs as ethnic tensions increase in northwestern China.

Armed with rocks, axes or wooden clubs, crowds stopped to smash Uighur businesses as they marched through the capital, Urumqi.

The vastly outnumbered police fired tear gas to curb the violence but their efforts had little if any impact.

It follows Sunday’s riots that left more than 150 people dead and a thousand others injured.
