Knife-wielding assailants killed nine policemen and 17 civilians in a bloody attack that only ended after 10 attackers were shot dead in western China Wednesday, according to NBC News.



The site reports at least three people were also injured during the early morning assault on the Lukqun Township in Xinjiang province.

If confirmed, it would be one of the bloodiest incidents in Xinjiang since nearly 200 people were killed in the regional capital, Urumqi, in 2009, NBC News reports.
