Incident indicates extremists are spreading outside Xinjiang: Experts

Terrorist attacks carried out by extremists from the Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region have spread outside the region and become more difficult to prevent, experts said on Wednesday after police identified Monday's deadly crash at Beijing's Tian'anman Square as a terrorist attack.

Usmen Hasan, with his mother Kuwanhan Reyim and his wife Gulkiz Gini on board, drove a jeep with a Xinjiang license plate into a crowd of people at noon on Monday, killing two and injuring another 40.
