China: 55 Convicted of Murder, Terror, Separatism

A Chinese court convicted 55 people of terrorism, separatism and murder, in an attempt for the government to demonstrate its firm conviction to fight the instability in the northwest region of the country.

The conviction took place before an audience of 7,000 observers in a Xinjiang stadium, the region in which 43 people were killed in last week’s marketplace attack.
