US politicians are sending one particular of their strongest ever warnings to China above the crackdown on Uighur men and women.
A lot more than a million of the Muslim ethnic minority have been imprisoned in what China describes as “vocational schooling” camps.
The government claims inmates are there voluntarily to renounce so-known as “extremist” feelings.
Even so, rights teams label the “re-education and learning” camps in Xinjiang Province as prisons, stating they are element of a systematic campaign to strip the Muslims of their identity and society.
China is condemning a US invoice demanding the closure of the camps, and sanctions towards Communist party leaders.
Will this measure modify something for the Uighurs?
