    BEIJING: Nine people were sentenced to up to 14 years’ jail for terror-related offenses at a public rally in China’s far-western Xinjiang, officials said, the latest step in Beijing’s “strike hard” campaign in the mainly Muslim region. Their offenses included leading and participating in terrorist organizations and inciting separatism, according to a verified microblog posting by the Qapqal city government. Beijing has vowed a year-long crackdown on terrorism—and last week executed 13 people—following several high-profile attacks blamed on Xinjiang militants.
