China confirms terror camps in Pak
Thursday, April 19, 2007 (Beijing)
Just hours after Pakistani Prime Minister Shoukat Aziz flew out of Beijing, there is acknowledgement from China that terrorists fighting in Xinjiang province received training in terrorist camps in Pakistan.
China’s oil-rich northwestern province of Xinjiang has witnessed a long-running insurgency by Muslim Uigur separatist fighters.
They train and take refuge in camps across the border in Kyrgyzstan, Afghanistan and now, as China says, in Pakistan.
The confirmation came in a court document in the trial of 37-year-old Uigur guerilla who was today sentenced to life imprisonment by a Chinese court in Xinjiang, for alleged terrorist and separatist activities.
