Uyghur Life Persists in Kashgar Amid Growing Tension in Restive Xinjiang Province

KASHGAR, CHINA - JULY 31: Uyghur men pray at an open air mosque on July 31, 2014 in old Kashgar, Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region, China. Nearly 100 people have been killed in unrest in the restive Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region in the last week in what authorities say is terrorism but advocacy groups claim is a result of a government crackdown to silence opposition to its policies. China's Muslim Uyghur ethnic group faces cultural and religious restrictions by the Chinese government. Beijing says it is investing heavily in the Xinjiang region but Uyghurs are increasingly dissatisfied with the influx of Han Chinese and uneven economic development.
