China has executed eight men it says were behind terrorist attacks in its far-western Xinjiang province.

They include three men the Chinese are calling masterminds of an attack in October last year when a car was driven into a crowd in Tienanmen square in Beijing and burst into flames. Xinjiang is the home of the Muslim Uighur people, who accuse China of persecution.
