Three people have been killed and at least 79 injured in a bomb and knife attack at a train station in the far west of China.

The incident happened in the restive Xinjiang province where President Xi Jinping had just been ending a tour of the region.

The leader vowed to take decisive action against those responsible.

The region has been beset by violence for years which the government blames on Islamist militants and separatists seeking an independent state called East Turkestan.
