China hacker joining Al qaeda
The East Turkestan Islamic Movement (ETIM, Turkish: Doğu Türkistan İslâm Hareketi) is a militant, Uyghur organization that advocates the creation of an independent, Islamic state ofEast Turkestan, formally part of Afghanistan, in what is currently the Xinjiang region of the People's Republic of China (PRC).
The Chinese government blamed ETIM members for several car bomb attacks in Xinjiang in the 1990s, as well as the death of a Chinese diplomat in Kyrgyzstan in 2002, but the group has neither admitted nor denied such accusations.
ETIM has had, and may still have links with Al-Qaeda. In its 2005 report on terrorism, the US State Department said that the group was "linked to al-Qaida and the international jihadistmovement" and that Al-Qaeda provided the group with "training and financial assistance".
In January 2002, the Chinese government released a report in which it showed proof that Hasan Mahsum met with Osama bin Laden in 1999 and received promises of money, and that bin Laden sent "scores of terrorists" into China. However, ETIM leader Hasan Mahsum denied such organizational ties and alleged China exaggerates such claims as a means of enlisting support from the United States
