China Security Chief Says East Turkestan Group Behind Attack

The people in a vehicle that crashed near Tiananmen Square this week, leaving five dead, had links to a Uighur militant group in Central Asia, China’s security chief Meng Jianzhu said in an interview with Phoenix Television.

China should take a firmer stance against terrorism, Meng said during a meeting yesterday of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization in Uzbekistan, according to a video report on Phoenix TV’s website.
