An unspecified number of people have been taken to hospital with injuries, according to the regional branch of the Communist Party news portal, the Tianshan.

The explosions occurred in at least three separate locations in Luntai County on Sunday afternoon.

An investigation is under-way. Xinjiang has seen unrest in recent months, with Beijing blaming the region’s native Muslim Turkic Uighur ethnic group, which seeks independence, for the unrest.
