A Chinese court has sentenced six terrorists to death or life imprisonment for separatist and terrorist activities, Xinhua has learnt.

The Intermediate People's Court of Kashgar in northwest China's Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, held the first-instance trial on Thursday and handed down the death penalty to three people, suspended death sentences to two and ordered life imprisonment for the other.

The six, with the support of the terrorist group East Turkestan Islamic Movement (ETIM) based outside China, set up a training camp in the mountains of Pamirs plateau in south Xinjiang. They recruited and trained potential terrorists between August 2005 and January this year, the court heard.

They organized other terrorists to shoot police who raided the camp on Jan. 5, killing one officer and injuring another.

They were also accused of storing 16 kilograms of explosives and making 67 grenades and two suicide bombs.

Police destroyed the terrorist camp in the raid, killing 18 and capturing 17 others.
