Beijing, Dec 8 – A court in China sentenced eight people to death Monday for two deadly attacks in the violence-torn far-western Xinjiang region, state media said.

Five others were given suspended death sentences, state broadcaster CCTV said — a penalty normally commuted to life in prison.

Another four were jailed over the attacks, which killed 39 people at a market and one at a train station this spring. Several attackers also died.
