BEIJING - On a cloudy and quiet Thursday morning, the market near People's Park in Xinjiang's Urumqi came to life with peddlers and residents as usual.

Surging terror attacks demand concerted global efforts
Terror fight 'must be intensified'

With drizzle softly dampening their shoulders, local elders leisurely walked through the market, stopping from time to time to greet each other.

Suddenly, two vehicles without license plates broke through roadside fences and plowed into the people going about their daily business.

"Boom! Boom!" Explosive devices were set off. In a second, the tranquil and harmonious market became an inferno.

"Four senior citizens were run over and killed in front of me."

"The cars went past near my stall, an old man near us was hit and I was in fear for my life."

"People were screaming and crying. There was blood on some of them. It was horrible."

These were some of the accounts witnesses told Xinhua.

The latest figures say the terror attack killed at least 31 people and injured 94 others.
