Uighur children hurt in school raid

A clash during a police raid on an illegal Muslim school in the Xinjiang region of western China has resulted in twelve children being taken to hospital.

State media blamed staff who'd ignited flammable liquid to keep police at bay.

But a German-based group representing China's mainly Muslim Uighur minority said police had used tear gas, injuring children between six and ten years old.

The school on the fifth floor of a residential building was largely burned out.

Police said fifty-four children were being held against their parents wishes, but the Uighur group said they were being taught the Koran.

Anak-anak Uighur menderita luka dalam penggerebekan sekolah

Bentrokan yang terjadi dalam penggerebekan polisi terhadap sekolah Muslim ilegal di daerah Xinjiang, Cina barat menyebabkan 12 anak-anak dilarikan ke rumah sakit.

Media resmi pemerintah menuding staf menyalakan cairan yang mudah terbakar untuk mencegah polisi masuk.

Namun kelompok yang berkantor di Jerman dan yang mewakili kelompok minoritas Muslim Uighur mengatakan polisi menggunakan gas air mata sehingga menyebabkan anak-anak yang berusia antara enam hingga 10 tahun mengalami luka-luka.

Sekolah yang terletak di lantai empat gedung perumahan habis terbakar.

Polisi mengatakan 54 anak-anak ditahan di sana tanpa seizin orang tua mereka, tetapi kelompok Uighur mengatakan anak-anak tersebut diberi pelajaran Quran.

A concrete dock torn from a port in northern Japan by last year's tsunami has floated ashore in the US state of Oregon, more than eight thousand kilometres across the Pacific Ocean.

The dock is more than twenty metres long and weighs one-hundred-and-sixty-five tons.

A Japanese consulate official in Portland, Oregon, said a commemorative plaque showed it had come from the fishing port of Misawa.

Radiation checks proved negative, but scientists warn that invasive species foreign to the area may have hitched a ride.

Dermaga tsunami terhanyut ke Oregon

Dermaga beton yang terputus dari pelabuhan di Jepang utara akibat tsunami tahun lalu mendarat Oregon, negara bagian Amerika Serikat, lebih dari 8.000 kilometer melewati Lautan Pasifik.

Dermaga memiliki panjang 20 meter lebih dan memiliki berat 165 ton.

Seorang pejabat konsulat Jepang di Portland, Oregon mengatakan plakat peringatan menunjukkan dermaga berasal dari pelabuhan perikanan di Misawa.

Pemeriksaan menunjukkan dermaga tidak terkena radiasi, tetapi para ilmuwan memperingatkan bahwa spesies asing yang bersifat penyerbu mungkin turut terangkut.
