China warns of risk of rising terror attacks

Beijing, Jan 23 (IANS) Chinese security officials have warned of rising risks of terrorist attacks amid surging international terrorism.

Although serious violent crime dropped by 12.5 percent nationwide in 2015, risks of terrorist attacks must be guarded against, Xinhua cited a document released at the ongoing central conference on political and legal work, which opened on Friday in Beijing.

“We must firmly curb terrorist activities in Xinjiang Uygur region, prevent these activities from spreading inland, and prevent violent terrorist attacks in large and medium-sized cities,” it said.

To better counter terrorism, police will promote the use of contact-less detection devices for explosives, dynamic face recognition as well as voice and voiceprint recognition, according to the document.
