Three people were killed and 79 others injured in an attack on a railway station in China's Xinjiang yesterday as the president wrapped up a trip to the restive region.

China's official news agency Xinhua said attackers slashed people with knives and set off explosives at the south railway station in Xinjiang's capital Urumqi, calling it a "violent terrorist attack".

The assault came on the same day that President Xi Jinping ended his first visit as leader to the far western region of Xinjiang, home to the country's mostly Muslim Uighur minority.
