In this photo taken on Wednesday, Aug. 31, 2011, member of security officers patrol on a street during the China-Eurasia Expo in Urumqi in northwest China's Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region. A Chinese official said security forces defused several plots to sabotage an international trade fair in the turbulent region of Xinjiang, though he provided few details. The China-Eurasia Expo opened in the regional capital Urumqi on Thursday, Sept. 1, and attendees include Pakistan's President Asif Ali Zardari and Kyrgyzstan's caretaker President Roza Otunbayeva. The expo is aimed at cementing Urumqi's place as Central Asia's business center for trade and industry, despite a sometimes violent insurgency among its native Muslim population.
