Up to 140 people have been killed and more than 800 injured during violent ethnic riots in China’s western Xinjiang region.

Thousands of people, mostly Muslim Uighurs, took to the streets of the region’s capital, Urumqi, where some rioters smashed vehicles and set them alight.

Others overturned barricades, attacked bystanders and clashed with police, the official Xinhua news agency reported.
