NUTS AND RAISINS FOR SALE AT MARKET
Nuts and raisins of all colors are displayed for sale at a Uighur market in central Urumqi, Xinjiang, September 14, 2006. Among the casualties of the 'war on terror' are the largely forgotten Muslim peoples of Xinjiang. This huge area is almost as large as the whole of Western Europe and was traditionally inhabited by the Muslim Uighurs, Kazaks, and some smaller groups. However, the last two decades have seen a massive influx of Han Chinese migrants and the native Muslim population is in danger of being outnumbered in its own heartland. Resentment against Han Chinese political and cultural domination simmers and has sometimes erupted into riots and even warfare. (UPI Photo/Stephen Shaver)
