A fresh protest has broken out in the
capital of China's volatile Xinjiang region, with a large group of
protesters blocking a main road in a stand-off with security
The demonstration comes two days after at least 156 people were
killed in ethnic violence in Urumqi.
The latest clash Tuesday came in front of a group of reporters
who were being taken around the city to see the aftermath of
Sunday's riots, when hundreds of vehicles and shops were attacked.
About 200 Uighurs, some screaming that their husbands and
children had been arrested, blocked a road. Riot police were at one
end of the road and paramilitary police were at the other end.
