From October 13, transport authorities in Urumqi will begin installing SOS emergency call systems at bus stops around the city.
If passengers view anyone ‘suspicious’ looking, they can press a button and the police will be called out.
This move is the latest in a wave of increased security measures in the city as violence has been steadily increasing across the region. Racial profiling and cash rewards for informing on potential terrorist activities have also been introduced both in and outside of Xinjiang.
