(AP Photo/Andy Wong, File)By Michael Martina and Ben Blanchard BEIJING (Reuters) - China formally indicted a prominent ethnic Uighur professor for separatism on Wednesday, as security forces flooded into the far western region of Xinjiang amid more reports of violence following what the government called a terrorist attack. Police in Beijing in January detained Ilham Tohti, a well-known economist who has championed the rights of the Muslim Uighur community, who come from Xinjiang. He was subsequently taken to the regional capital Urumqi and accused of promoting and supporting Xinjiang's independence from China, a red line for Beijing which views the region as an inseparable part of the country. The case against Tohti is the latest sign of the government's hardening stance on dissent in Xinjiang, where unrest in the past year or so has killed more than 200, including several police, according to state media.

Smoke billows during clashes between security forces and armed groupsIslamist groups seized the headquarters of the army's special forces in Libya's second city Benghazi after days of fighting, plunging the country further into lawlessness and uncertainty. Intense fighting in Benghazi has claimed about 60 lives since Saturday, medical officials in the city said. "Special forces under the command of (Colonel) Wanis Abu Khamada withdrew after several attacks," said the army official after the biggest loss yet for the armed forces in their fight against the country's powerful militias. The special forces are one of the units of Libya's regular armed forces that support rogue Libyan general Khalifa Haftar but have not placed themselves under his command.
