Chinese Jihadis Bring Axes to a Gun Fight

Eleven dead in Xinxiang province, native home to much of China's Muslim population. But if you look below the eleven figure, you realize nine of them were the attackers killed by bullets, while only two of the attacked killed by knives and axes:

At least 11 people were killed in an attack by a group of armed men against a police station in Serikbuya, a town in the autonomous Chinese region of Xinjiang, located approximately 400km southwest of the region's capital, Urumqi. According to the official state press Xinhua, nine men armed with axes and knives managed to kill two policemen and wounded two more before being shot down by other officers.
