The attack came on the same day that President Xi Jinping ended a visit to the restive region in China's far west that is home to the country's mostly Muslim Uighur minority.

Four people were seriously injured but were “in a stable condition” after being sent to hospital for treatment, Xinhua reported, citing local Communist Party officials.
