BEIJING—China’s state-run Xinhua news agency said that police had “gunned down” several rioters who attacked and set fire to a police station in the mostly Muslim northwestern region of Xinjiang, in what appeared to be the most serious unrest there since ethnic rioting in 2009.
Two security personnel and two hostages were killed, and one other security officer was injured in the attack, which began around midday Monday in Hotan—a small and remote oasis city on the edge of the Taklamakan desert—Xinhua said. It didn’t say how many attackers were killed or injured.
Armed police rescued six other hostages and regained control of the situation by around 1:30 p.m., Xinhua said, adding that China’s National Counter-Terrorism Office had taken charge of the operation.
