Uighurs stage protest in Istanbul, slam China
Turkish police scuffle with Uighur protesters briefly near the Chinese Consulate in Istanbul condemning violence in China's Xinjiang-Uighur Autonomous Region, .
The protests follow the July 5 clashes between the Uighur and the Han Chinese in Urumqi which claimed more than 200 lives and injured one thousand more.
Dozens of Uighurs shouting 'Allah Is Great' tried to break through police barricades on Sunday to reach the gates of the consulate. The state-run Anatolia news agency said the demonstrators set a Chinese flag on fire and were sprayed with pepper gas by the police.
The agency said that the police later allowed the demonstrators to leave a black wreath at the consulate in protest.
