Beijing, China (CNN) -- China has caught 10 members of a terrorist group, including the leader, the Ministry of Public Security said Thursday.

The group was planning many attacks in China's northwestern Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region, the ministry said.

The terror group is suspected in violent attacks on police and explosions in Xinjiang in 2008.
