Uighur jihadists attack Chinese embassy in Netherlands — and the Dutch are paying for repairs
The Dutch government considers itself responsible for violence committed by jihadists living in the Netherlands. It is unlikely that they feel the same loyalty in return. “Chinese embassy in Netherlands attacked by supporters of Xinjiang separatists,” fromÂ Xinhua, July 7 (thanks to JW):
