FILE - In this July 13, 2009 file photo, Uighur men, foreground, watch as a formation of paramilitary police officers patrol Urumqi in western China's Xinjiang region. China has an anti-terrorism statute, but it prefers to consider terrorism part of a vague charge of "endangering state security," under which it has arrested more than 7,000 people, mostly in Xinjiang, according to the government's annual crime reports. Xinjiang is known as East Turkistan to ethnic Uighurs fighting for an independent homeland. (AP Photo/Eugene Hoshiko, File) less
