    BEIJING: A clash in China’s far western region of Xinjiang, home to the country’s mostly Muslim Uighur minority, left nearly 100 people dead and wounded, an exile group said on Wednesday. Chinese state media reported late on Tuesday that dozens of civilians and assailants were killed and injured in what it described as a “terrorist attack” in the region, saying a gang armed with knives and axes had attacked a police station and government offices, before moving on to a township. “Police officers at the scene shot dead dozens of members of the mob,” the official news agency Xinhua said of the violence, said to have occurred early on Monday.
