China clamps down on Uighurs  
 

Chinese state media says more than 100 people have been killed and another 800 people injured in rioting in the far western Xinjiang Autonomous Region.
 
The violence broke out after a protest on Sunday by ethnic Uighurs - Muslims who accuse the Beijing government of a systematic campaign to dilute and destroy their culture.

Al Jazeera's Melissa Chan reports on the protests, which the government blames on overseas agitators.
