Chinese police were seeking two men Tuesday in relation to a fiery car crash in Beijing's iconic Tiananmen Square that killed five people and injured 38. The two men are from the far western region of Xinjiang, investigators said in a police notice widely circulated on Chinese microblogs. Their names suggested they may be ethnic Uighur, according to the South China Morning Post. Uighurs are a Turkic-speaking Muslim minority who live primarily in Xinjiang province and have been blamed for separatist unrest in the region in the past.
