    WASHINGTON, D.C.: The United States on Thursday (Friday in Manila) condemned the “horrific terrorist attack” that killed at least 31 in China’s Xinjiang, voicing strong opposition to violence targeting civilians. The swift condemnation comes after Chinese social media users criticized the United States for not immediately using the term “terrorism” to describe earlier attacks blamed by authorities on members of the Uighur minority. “The United States condemns the horrific terrorist attack in Urumqi,” White House press secretary Jay Carney said in a statement. Authorities said that at least 31 people were killed as attackers rammed two vehicles into a market and threw explosives in Urumqi, the capital of Xinjiang.
