At least 27 people have been killed and three others injured after knife-wielding gangs went on the rampage through a town in far western China, according to state media.
The Xinhua news agency said mobs attacked police stations, a local government building and a construction site in the Turpan Oasis in the Turkic-speaking Xinjiang region.
Nine police officers and security guards, as well as eight civilians, were killed before police shot dead 10 of the attackers.
