Last month, a Chinese court sentenced 12 people to death after finding them guilty of “terrorist attacks” in Shache in July that killed 37 people. During the mayhem, 59 other people, later described by the authorities as terrorists, were shot dead by the police. But Uighur exile groups have described the episode as a massacre and said that those killed included demonstrators protesting against tightened restrictions on their Islamic religious practices.
