Fifteen people, including 11 "mobsters" have been killed and 14 others injured in a terrorist attack in China's restive Xinjiang province on Saturday.
The attack occurred Shache County in the northwestern province, state-run Xinhua news agency reported.
Tianshan news website said that the attackers used vehicles, knives and explosives in the assault.
It also claimed that the dead included 11 of the attackers branded as "mobsters" by state media.
Xinjiang, home to ethnic Uygur Muslims, has been restive for several years due to conflicts between locals and migrant Han Chinese from other provinces.
The region has experienced a spate of violent attacks in the last few years which China blames on the al-Qaeda-backed East Turkestan Islamic Movement (ETIM).
The violence in Xinjiang and some parts of the country have resulted in scores of deaths.
