Two "terrorists" have been sentenced to death for a deadly attack on police in a heavily Muslim Chinese city ahead of the Beijing Olympics, the official Xinhua news agency reported on Wednesday. The men were convicted of murder following the August 4 attack in China's northwest Xinjiang region that left 17 people dead and another 15 injured, according to a dispatch from Xinhua, which cited the Supreme Court. Xinhua described the two men, Abdurahman Azat, 33, and Kurbanjan Hemit, 28, as "terrorists" and said they had also been found guilty of illegally making guns, ammunition and explosives.
