Police in northeastern China Monday killed three knife-wielding "terrorists" from Xinjiang, the mainly Muslim region in the far west, who attacked officers, local authorities said.Shenyang, the Liaoning capital where the incident happened, is almost 3,000 kilometers (1,900 miles) from Urumqi, the capital of Xinjiang, which has seen sporadic violence in recent years blamed by authorities on Islamist terrorists.In one such incident, according to authorities, three people from a Xinjiang family crashed their car into crowds in Tiananmen Square, the symbolic heart of the Chinese state, killing themselves and two visitors in October 2013, raising the specter of spreading violence.More than 200 people died last year in violence either in or traced back to Xinjiang, according to media reports.
