Suspects detained after Inner Mongolia checkpoint attack

Police in China’s Inner Mongolia have identified and detained a number of suspects following an attack on a remote checkpoint in the region on Sunday morning.

Around 100 masked attackers, armed with sticks and pepper spray, stormed the checkpoint in Ejin Banner at around 03:00, smashing monitoring equipment and throwing smoke shells into buildings, Global Times reported.
A preliminary investigation suggested the the motive was a land dispute between Ejin Banner and neighbouring Jinta county in Gansu Province, according to Xinhua News Agency.
All 13 people on duty, including two checkpoint employees and 11 herdsmen, were injured in the attack, with six suffering serious injuries. They were reported to have been tied up and left outside in -20C temperatures after the attacks.
The area has seen several clashes after the redrawing of provincial boundaries in the 1960s and 1970s left ownership of certain lands undefined, reports BBC.
