At least 140 people are reported killed in China's deadliest confrontation between protesters and government forces since the Tiananmen Massacre 20 years ago. The minority Uighur people of Xinjiang Province, like the Tibetans in China, have seen their region overrun by Han Chinese, who now constitute 70% of the population of the Uighur capital of Urumqi.
