There was yet another Muslim jihad attack in China. Ho-hum. Nothing to see here, move along:

A wave of a suicide bombings and police shootings left eight people dead in western China yesterday, as Uighur Islamic separatists attempted to steal global attention from the Beijing Olympics.

In what appears to be one of the most widely coordinated assaults in recent memory, the militants threw or carried home-made explosives into a dozen government sites in Kuqa city, killing a security guard, injuring two police officers, destroying two police cars and damaging trading and commerce offices.

Their most ambitious assault involved wheeling a tricycle laden with explosives into a public security bureau just before dawn. One attacker was shot, another blew himself up and two were captured,
according to the state-run Xinhua news agency.

Six hours later, police tracked down some of the alleged militants in the local marketplace. In the ensuing battle, two militants were reportedly shot and three blew themselves up with bombs made from bent pipes, gas canisters and liquid gas tanks.

One suspect was detained, one was taken to hospital, and at least six were thought to have got away. The entire county of 400,000 people has now been cordoned off, business suspended and roadside
operations shut. Paramilitaries with machine guns were patrolling the streets.

The clashes come less than a week after Xinjiang witnessed the deadliest attack on Chinese security personnel in a decade. Last Monday, two alleged Muslim jihadists in Kashgar droved a lorry at high speed into a rank of jogging paramilarites, then killed the survivors with bombs and knives, eventually claiming 16 lives.

Meanwhile, friends and family mourn the death of Todd Bachman, the American who was murdered by a nutball knife slayer. Horrible.
