Imam Aronghan Aji looked the image of respectability as he set out in clerical robes and white turban to lead morning prayers at the ancient Adighar Mosque. He was stabbed by assassins intent on wiping out Chinese rule. Separatists, better financed and better armed than ever before, are feeding on age-old fears and new discontents. Anti-Chinese sentiment has grown explosive on a volatile mix of religious ferment from the Islamic world, nationalism from newly independent Central Asian countries and anger that Chinese migrants seem to be getting richer while native Turkic-speaking Muslims remain poor.

Although small in number, the separatists can count on support from disaffected Muslims at home and a network of lobbyists championing their cause from Istanbul to Washington. Since attacks began in early , pro-Chinese clerics have been assassinated in at least four cities--seven on one day alone; bombs exploded nearly simultaneously on three buses in the regional capital of Urumqi; and a border city erupted in a riot. The separatists also are suspected of blowing up a bus in Beijing, 1, miles away.

Authorities have closed mosques, conducted mass arrests and deployed army patrols, but the attacks have continued. Friction in Xinjiang is a function of geography. The ancient Silk Road that carried luxury goods between China and the Roman Empire traversed Xinjiang pronounced sheen-jyahng. There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the blast, but car bombs and suicide attacks targeting Damascus and other cities that remain under government control in the third year of the conflict have been claimed in the past by the al-Qaeda affiliated Jabhat al-Nusra group — one of scores of rebel factions fighting to oust Assad.

The target of Tuesday's attack was not immediately clear, although the explosion took place outside the former Interior Ministry building that was also damaged in the blast. Ambulances rushed to the scene and Syrian state TV aired footage firefighters trying to extinguish a blaze that engulfed several cars and buildings.
A man was seen lying on the ground in a pool of blood while another, apparently wounded, was seen being carried by civilians into a bus. Inspecting the site of the blast, Interior Minister Mohammed al-Shaar, who himself escaped a car bomb that targeted his convoy in December, told reporters the back-to-back attacks in the capital were in response to the "victories and achievements scored by the Syrian Arab Army on the ground against terrorism.
In recent weeks, government troops have overrun two rebel-held Damascus suburbs and a town outside the capital. They also have captured several villages near the border with Lebanon as part of their efforts to secure the strategic corridor running from Damascus to the Mediterranean coast, which is the heartland of the president's Alawite sect, an offshoot of Shiite Islam. Tuesday's explosion underlined the tenuous security in the Syrian capital, just a day after a remotely detonated roadside bomb struck Prime Minister Wael al-Halqi's convoy.
The premier escaped the assassination attempt unharmed, according to state TV. Also Tuesday, Syrian troops battled opposition fighters near a military helicopter base in the northern province of Aleppo, killing 15 rebels in a single airstrike against their positions, according to Observatory director Rami Abdul-Rahman. The rebels tried to storm the Mannagh base late Monday but the regime deployed fighter jets to the area, pounding rebel positions around the base, which is near Syria's border with Turkey, Abdul-Rahman said.
