On Sunday, July 5th in Urumqi, the capital of China’s western Xinjiang region, thousands of minority ethnic Uighur residents marched, demanding a government investigation into an earlier incident – a brawl between Han Chinese and Uighurs in a toy factory in Shaoguan that ended with at least two Uighur deaths.
Sometime during the July 5th protest the situation became very violent, Uighurs clashing with police and attacking local Han Chinese.
Urumqi citizens woke the next morning to learn that over 1,000 people had been injured and 156 killed in their city.
Government forces worked to quell the violence and to separate the newly-formed Han vigilante groups and the Uighurs still in the streets.
Communications were shut off, streets closed, curfews imposed, hundreds arrested, and thousands of troops poured into Urumqi, which remains tense – several clashes reported even today.
