Police identify Urumqi attack suspects

Police have identified five suspects who took part in a terrorist attack on Thursday that killed 39 innocent people and injured another 94.
Four of the suspects died in the bomb attack and their DNA have been identified. Another one was caught by police on Thursday night in Bayingolin Mongolia Autonomous Prefecture.
Police say the five suspects had long been influenced by the religious extremism. They took part in illegal religious activities, watched and listened to terrorist violence video and audio materials.
They formed a five-member terrorist gang at the end of 2013.
Thursday's attack is the worst attack in five years in the far western region after riots on July 5, 2009 in the regional capital claimed 197 lives and injured more than 1,700.

Putin blames West for inciting civil war in Ukraine

Russian President Vladimir Putin says ongoing events in Ukraine were a "full-scale civil war" incited by the West.
