URUMQI, July 11 (Xinhua) -- The Public Security Bureau of Urumqi city on Saturday published a notice to ban illegal assembly, march and demonstration in this capital city of northwest China's Xinjiang region.
In the notice, the police said the situation is basically under control after the riot, which broke out on July 5 and left 184 people dead and more than 1,000 others injured, but there are still sporadic illegal assemblies and demonstrations in some places.
The police said they issued the notice in order to maintain public order and ensure the security of lives and property.
"Assemblies, marches and demonstrations on public roads and at public places in the open air are not allowed without the permission by police," the notice read.
Police will disperse such illegal assemblies according to the law and are entitled to take necessary means if the crowd refuse to disperse.
Police will take people who resist police orders away from the scene, or detain such people at the scene, said the notice.
The notice also prohibits people from taking weapons and explosives to assemblies and demonstrations, or disrupting and sabotaging legal assemblies and marches with violence.
