A Muslim Uighur woman and her son sell bagels at a market in the town of Kashgar in Xinjiang Province on April 1, 2008. Muslim residents of this dust-coated 2,000-year-old Silk Road city in Xinjiang province express quiet anger when asked about recent clashes in a nearby city between Muslims and Chinese police, calling it just another example of oppression by Beijing. About 1,000 people clashed with police in the remote desert town of Khotan on March 23-24, according to exiles from the local Uighur minority, a central Asian people who are the dominant ethnic group in Xinjiang.
