Once a desert Oasis, Korle's skyline is now dotted with highrises. Korle, located in Chinaís western Xinjiang Province, is going through somewhat of an oil boom. The city has been growing rapidly the last few years due to the rapid expansion and growth in Chinaís petrochemicals industry. But the not everyone in Korle is enjoying equal benefits from the oil wealth. The local Muslim minority are feeling left out of the economic boom as this new found wealth is leaving them even more isolated than in the past.
