Imam’s killing in China may be aimed at making Muslim Uighurs choose sides

BEIJING (Reuters) - The murder of a state-backed imam in China's Xinjiang region underscores an escalation in 18 months of violence and could be part of a bid by extremists to persuade moderate Muslim Uighurs to turn against Beijing's controlled current of Islam. The targeting of Uighur officials or religious leaders has been an undercurrent of unrest for some 20 years in Xinjiang, where members of the Uighur minority are unhappy at official restrictions on their culture and religion. #Argentina #Business #France #India #Italy #Latin America #Mexico #opinion #Technology #United Kingdom #United States
