Security beefed up in Urumqi

CHINA: More shops re-opened in China's Urumqi city on Wednesday as security remained tight in its Muslim Uighur district, 10 days after the worst ethnic violence the country has seen in decades.

Many stores and restaurants that had remained shuttered in the Xinjiang regional capital since unrest broke out on July 5 opened their doors, although some were still closed, according to an AFP reporter at the scene.

Riot police continued to line the streets in the city's Uighur district and kept control of the area's main bazaar, which they have commandeered as a base.

Steel fences that could be quickly wheeled to block the streets were also placed on the side of roads.

Urumqi, Wednesday, AFP
