Fox News on June 29, 2013, published an AP report on Chinese paramilitary troops conducting round-the-clock patrols in the tense northwestern region of Xinjiang following a series of bloody clashes that have killed at least 56 people. Excerpts below:

The order for the patrols by the People’s Armed Police was issued by the ruling Communist Party’s top law enforcement official Men Jianzhu.

The order comes days ahead of the anniversary of a 2009 riot between Xinjiang’s native Uighur people and Han Chinese migrants in the regional capital Urumqi that killed nearly 200 people.

At least 35 people were killed when assailants attacked police and government offices , while another mob attempted to storm a police station elsewhere on June 28.
