Doctors of Different Ethnic Groups Treat Victims in Urumqi Riot

Doctors of ethnic Han and Uyghur ethnic minority in the People's Hospital of Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region have treated more than 300 people injured in the July 5 riot.

Soundbite: Komuqjan, doctor with the People's Hospital of Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region "Our department received 12 patients. They mainly suffered from external injuries in the head, face, arms and legs. Some of them were in serious condition when they were rushed here. One of the patients was bleeding in the head, so we cleaned and sutured the wounds immediately."

Medical staff told Xinhua that they are doing their utmost to treat all the patients, and that all the injured are their compatriots and must be rescued and cured.

Soundbite: Komuqjan, doctor with the People's Hospital of Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region "I felt heart-struck at seeing the innocent people injured by the rioters. As a doctor and an ordinary Uyghur citizen, I feel especially sad. The rioters are so vicious. The Party and the government must take measures to end such acts."

Patients of different ethnic groups were seen stay friendly to each other in the wards.

Soundbite: Dolkun, head of the Abdominal Surgical Department of the People's Hospital of Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region "At first we were worried that emotional barriers or frictions might exist between the patients. However, facts have proved we were completely wrong. The patients are all very friendly to each other. We all know it is not an ethnic issue, not a religion issue, but an issue concerning the unity and stability of our country. It is a conspiracy of anti-China forces at home and abroad. I think we ordinary people have a clear understanding of the issue."
