Xinhua news agency reported on Tueday that men armed with knives attacked a police station and government offices in Shache county early on Monday.

Xinhua reported police as saying that dozens of Uyghur and Han civilians were killed or injured in a "premeditated terrorism attack".

"Police officers at the scene shot dead dozens of members of the mob," the report said.
