Uighurs Commemorate 10th Anniversary Of 2009 Urumqui Riots In London
Members and supporters of the Uighur community in the UK mark the 10th anniversary of the 2009 Urumqi riots at a rally outside the Chinese Embassy in London, England, on July 5, 2019. Deadly clashes between Uighur Muslims and Han Chinese broke out in Urumqi (capital of the Xinjiang Uighur Autonomous Region in north-west China) on July 5, 2009. According to official figures 197 people died in the violence, most of them Han Chinese. Uighur groups maintain that the death toll was much higher, however, and that the victims were predominantly Uighur. Demonstrations have been organised by the World Uyghur Congress in 23 cities around the world. (Photo by David Cliff/NurPhoto via Getty Images)
