Today, the English edition of the Global Times, part of the People’s Daily , said that the police have linked the incident with the Xinjiang and some Uyghur suspects . But the Chinese edition does not mention anything about Xinjiang .
Yesterday, all day censors removed any news or comments about the incident from the web, allowing only the official version of Xinhua.
The western region of Xinjiang has been shaken by Islamic Uyghur nationalist movements for decades. For the most part they seek greater autonomy from the cultural and commercial dictatorship of the central government that has colonized the region with millions of Han immigrants and hundreds of thousands of soldiers.
In the past there have been incidents and clashes between Uyghurs and Han in Xinjiang, as well as attacks that the government in Beijing has branded as “terrorist” , though often conducted with makeshift equipment ( petrol bombs , knives , plastic , etc. … ) .
The Chinese edition of the Global Times today warns against “politicizing ” the incident in Tiananmen too. Tiananmen Square, site of the infamous massacre on June 4, 1989 , is subject to a heavy security cordon to prevent even the slightest protest .
In China, large-scale corruption d throughout the Party has led to over 180 thousand “mass incidents” a year, in which different groups – farmers, workers , retirees, ex-military , … – Clashed with police , often violently.
A source for AsiaNews in Beijing said: “The party is seeking to water down this incident, but it reveals the profound dissatisfaction and fatigue of the whole population , not only of the Uyghurs”.

The altered links on the US president’s accounts led to a graphically violent 24-minute YouTube video, entitled ‘Syria facing terrorism’.
“Obama doesn’t have any ethical issues with spying on the world, so we took it upon ourselves to return the favor,” the SEA wrote on Twitter.
According to Mashable, the Syrian hackers didn’t actually compromise Obama’s social media accounts, but changed the links in the posts by tampering with the URL shortener service for BarackObama.com.
The group appears to have hacked the electronic address one of the administrators of the website, which Obama used in his presidential campaigns in 2008 and 2012, to gain access to its control panel.
The links on Obama’s Twitter and Facebook pages have been currently fixed.
White House Press Secretary, Jay Carney, refused to comment on the issue during his media-conference on Monday.
The initial attack on BarackObama.com took place on Sunday as it began redirecting the users to the SEA’s page.
The Syrian Electronic Army is a hacking group, supporting Syrian President Bashar Assad, which became famous in recent month after defacing the websites and Twitter accounts of many prominent media outlets, like AP, AFP, BBC, New York Times and others.

The 48-year-old is said to have been mentally ill, confirmed by family members. For that reason there were often arguments. Many people knew about the 48-year-old’s mental problems and the tensions in his marriage. But not one had expected his madness would one day lead to such a terrible bloody deed. “We are all shattered,” said friends.
It was on Friday afternoon at around 4 pm that Hasan C. lost it completely. He raged and screamed. His wife Ulfiye (45) fled to the balcony. Neighbours heard her cry for help. Then there was suddenly a deathly quiet in the high-rise flats in Oberschleißheim.
At around 5.30 pm, one of their daughters looked in on the married couple. The 21-year-old found her parents lying in bed, dead. The father had almost completely cut the mother’s head off with an axe. Then the 48-year-old lay next to the corpse and cut his throat with a carpet knife. Hasan C. bled out within a few minutes.
