In Urumqi, China, clashes occurred between the minority Uighers and state police.

Police shot dead two Uighur men and wounded a third Monday on the streets of Urumqi, where tens of thousands of troops are stationed to restore calm a week after deadly ethnic riots raged in the western Chinese city.

Police said the three men attacked them when they tried to pull them off a fourth Uighur, whom they had attacked with knives and rods. A government official in Urumqi who described the attack would give only his surname, Fan.

In German, 89 year old John Demjanjuk will finally see his day in court for alleged Nazi atrocities.

German prosecution yesterday charged John Demjanjuk with involvement in the murder of at least 27,000 Jews at the Sobibor extermination camp during World
War II. The court decided the 89-year-old was fit to stand trial for his alleged participation in the mass killing of Jews orchestrated by the Nazis while he served as a camp guard. Advertisement

In 1988, the Ukrainian-born Demjanjuk was sentenced in Israel to death, but then acquitted in 1993 by Israel's Supreme Court of being the notorious "Ivan the Terrible" at the Treblinka death camp. Now he stands accused of being part of the death machine at another camp in Poland - Sobibor.
