My Edinburgh Review piece on the riots in Xinjiang has been picked up by Eurozine, a site that brings together social and political articles from various magazines and journals.
At the end of the piece I wrote that there have been ‘few [recent] reported incidents of protest, violent or otherwise’.
This is no longer the case:
As far I can tell, it is unclear who is committing these acts. Whilst they are probably motivated by separatism, the extent to which (if any) they are Islamist, remains to be determined.
