China executes driver for herder death The herder was killed while blocking the road through his village during a protest against noise and pollution from coal trucksChina has executed a truck driver for killing an ethnic Mongolian herder in a case that sparked Inner Mongolia's largest demonstrations in 20 years.The official Xinhua news agency said in a brief report that Li Lindong had been executed on 18 August. The report, dated 19 August, was posted to a regional news website and appeared not to have been widely circulated.The herder, Mergen, who like many Mongols used just one name, was killed on 10 May while he and others were blocking the road through their village to protest against noise and pollution produced by coal trucks driving across the grasslands. Police said Li ran over Mergen and then dragged his body for 145 metres before he died.His death and that of another Mongol in a clash with Chinese coalminers sparked protests across the sprawling northern pastureland by herders and students demanding justice and greater protection for Mongol culture and the nomadic herding lifestyle.Li was sentenced in June after a six-hour trial at the intermediate people's court in the region's Xilingol League area. Fellow driver Lu Xiangdong, who had been sitting in the cab of Li's truck when he drove over the herder, was also convicted of homicide and sentenced to life in prison, state media said earlier.Two other people, Wu Xiaowei and Li Minggang, were convicted of obstructing justice and given three-year sentences for blocking police who arrived at the scene, allowing Li Lindong and Lu to escape.Mass migration to the Inner Mongolia region by members of China's majority Han ethnic group and a booming mining industry have placed traditional ways of life under severe pressure.China is the world's largest enforc 石炭trucksChinaから騒音や公害に対する抗議の間に彼の村を通過道路をブロックしながら、遊牧民は20 years.The新華社に内モンゴル最大のデモをきっかけ場合には、民族モンゴルの遊牧民を殺すためにトラックの運転手を実行している殺された李林洞は8月18日に実行されていたことの簡単な報告書で述べた
Chinese Partners Reach Consumers In Remote Corners When I lived in Beijing, occasionally people would tell me I looked like I was from Xinjiang, the natural resources-rich province in far western China. I never quite understood why…that is until my trip to Xinjiang last month. From the moment I landed in Urumqi, the provincial capital, it was clear that the people of Xinjiang were unlike that of the eastern provinces. The Han Chinese ethnicity that constitutes the majority in most of the country was significantly out-numbered in many areas of the city by the local Uighur population. Uighurs are a Turkic ethnic group who share linguistic and cultural ties with communities in neighboring Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan. 私は時々、北京に住んでいたときの人々は、私は新疆、これまで中国西部の天然資源が豊富な地域からいたように私は見て答えてくれなかった
