Between 200 and 300 ethnic minority students from China's Xinjiang region demonstrated in Peking's Tian An Men Square against nuclear testing in their region, authorities in the capital said. The demonstrators are students at the Central College of Nationalities, a Peking institute serving members of China's 55 ethnic minorities. The Xinjiang Uighur Autonomous Region, a desert area in central Asia, contains the 40,000-square-mile Lop Nor test site, where China exploded its first atomic bomb in 1964.
