    BEIJING (AP) — China has sent an elite anti-terrorism unit to the restive far western region of Xinjiang in the wake of recent violence there and ahead of an international trade convention, a state newspaper reported Saturday.

    The Snow Leopard Commando unit will be based in Aksu city, roughly halfway between Kashgar, where two violent attacks took place in July, and the regional capital of Urumqi, the China Daily quoted a spokesman for the Xinjiang People's Armed Police as saying.
