The official Xinhua News Agency said in a brief report that the 13 were involved in seven cases and were executed Monday.

Also Monday, a court in western China sentenced three other people to death for planning a deadly car ramming at Beijing's Tiananmen Gate last year that was blamed on Muslim separatists.
