According to the latest news the World Uyghur Congress obtained directly from East Turkistan, Uyghurs in Urumchi are not only facing brutal massacre at the hands of the Chinese armed forces and police but also from Chinese civilians who have started to engage in a mass slaughter of the Uyghurs.

Chinese civilians, using clubs, bars, knives and machetes, are killing the Uyghurs throughout East Turkistan. They are storming the university dormitories, Uyghur residential homes, workplaces and organizations, and massacring children, women and elderly.

According to the latest news the World Uyghur Congress obtained about one hour ago, one Uighur young man was mutilated on Dongbeilu. A Uighur woman who was carrying a baby in her arms was mutilated along with her infant baby on Huanghelu. Over 1,000 ethnic Han Chinese armed with knives and machetes marched into Xinjiang Medical University and engaged in a mass killing of the Uyghurs. Two Uyghur female students were beheaded; their heads were placed on a stake on the middle of the street. In Railroad factory, Ergong subdivision, ethnic Han Chinese began searching for Uighurs and upon finding them, killed them in mass numbers. The World Uyghur Congress headquarters has received many disturbing news reports stating the above.

Chinese police and security forces are not taking any action against this barbaric and gratuitous violence against the Uyghurs. The Chinese government is not taking any measures or precautions to safeguard Uyghur civilians from this mob violence and these brutal massacres. Uighurs living in residential areas densely-populated by ethnic Han Chinese are in grave danger. Chinese police and security forces are taking no action against such deadly violence against the Uyghur people.

At the moment, ethnic Han Chinese are phoning World Uyghur Congress headquarters in Munich, Germany and voicing threats against the WUC leadership.

We appeal to the United Nations, the United Sates of America, European countries and NATO forces who defend justice and world peace to intervene immediately, send troops and make all efforts to ensure peace and stability in East Turkistan and save the helpless Uyghurs from this violent bloodshed.

The situation in East Turkistan is declining rapidly. Scenes from streets, shops and residential areas are beyond anyone's imagination. With each passing minute another innocent Uyghur life is stolen!!!
