Bombs thrown from car in crowded Chinese market, killing at least 31 and injuring scores more
Thirty-one people are dead and more than 90 injured after attackers drove their cars into an open-air market in China and hurled explosives out the windows.
The attack occurred at 7.50am local time in the city of Urumqi, the capital of the volatile Xinjiang region, and has been described as a ‘serious violent terrorist incident’ by China’s Ministry of Public Security.
Two 4x4 vehicles rammed into shoppers in an open market, Xinhua news agency reported, citing witness reports.
Explosives were flung out of the vehicles, and one of the vehicles exploded.
One witness told Reuters he saw the aftermath of the blasts on his way to work
‘The air was full of the smell of gunpowder and the sound of sobbing,’ he said. ‘There were simply too many (casualties), old folks who were at the morning market.’
