Police in China's restive far western region of Xinjiang shot dead 14 people during a riot in which two policemen were also killed, the regional government has said.

Police were attacked by a mob throwing explosive devices and wielding knives when they went to arrest "criminal suspects" in a village near the old Silk Road city of Kashgar on Sunday (local time), the government said on its official news portal Tianshan.
