China to Start Year-long Anti-terror Operation

Chinese police will start a year-long nationwide anti-terror operation, the Ministry of Public Security said Sunday.

The ministry asked police in Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region and in the rest of the country to cooperate and launch a strong and joint offensive against terrorism.

Xinjiang police announced the start of the campaign on Friday. According to them, the campaign will last until June 2015.

Police are urged to stop terrorists from striking again and prevent terrorists and religious extremists from spreading from Xinjiang to the rest of the country.
