3 Killed In Urumqi Violence

THREE people of the Han ethnic group were killed in a riot yesterday in Urumqi, capital of northwest China's Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, sources with the regional government said early today.

More than 20 others were injured in the incident and many motor vehicles were burned.

The regional government did not say how many people were involved in the unrest, but said they illegally gathered in several downtown places and engaged in beating, smashing, looting and burning.

The government sent police to disperse the crowd and arrested some rioters.
