At least 140 are dead and hundreds injured as ethnic Uyghurs protested their treatment in a western Chinese district. The Uyghurs are a predominantly Muslim group who say that mainstream Chinese treat them as second class citizens and discriminate against them.

Roving mobs of Han Chinese are walking the streets with improvised weapons after recent riot violence by minority Uyghurs that has left many dead and injured. Chinese officials are desperately trying to convince the Han majority to let the government handle the situation to avoid further bloodshed.
