China sentences 6 to death for riot violence

A court in China's far western Xinjiang region sentenced six men to death Monday and a seventh man was given life imprisonment for murder and other crimes committed during ethnic riots that killed nearly 200 people.

The sentences were the first for any of the scores of suspects arrested in the July rioting between Muslim Uighurs and members of the Han Chinese majority in the regional capital of Urumqi. It was China's worst communal violence in decades.

The verdicts appeared aimed at placating Han Chinese who have rallied in Urumqi calling for swift justice. An overseas Uighur activist, however, said they were only likely to exacerbate the ethnic tensions.

Xinjiang has been under heavy security since the strife, and state TV showed paramilitary troops in riot gear surrounding the courthouse Monday.

The official Xinhua News Agency said seven people were convicted of murder, and some also convicted of arson and robbery. Six received the death penalty: Abdukerim Abduwayit, Gheni Yusup, Abdulla Mettohti, Adil Rozi, Nureli Wuxiu'er, and Alim Metyusup.

A seventh man —Tayirejan Abulimit — got a lesser life imprisonment because he had aided in the capture of another man, confirmed Li Jie, a spokesman for the Xinjiang regional government. The names of the convicted men appeared to identify them as Uighurs.

Public prosecutors presented witness testimony, autopsy reports, crime scene video and other evidence during the trial attended by 400 people.

Police have said hundreds of people were detained following the rioting in Urumqi that the government says killed 197 people and injured more than 1,700. State media has reported that 21 people — mostly Uighurs — have been indicted on charges including murder and arson
