Chinese Muslims bomb and stab 16 police officers dead

Chinese state media say two men from a mainly Muslim ethnic group were responsible for an attack Monday that left 16 police officers dead, four days ahead the opening of the Beijing Olympics.

China's official Xinhua news agency says the two Uighur men drove a dump truck into a group of jogging policemen early Monday in the city of Kashgar. The report says the attackers threw two home-made explosives at a nearby police station and hacked at officers with knives.
