Reuters Investigates - Tracking China’s Muslim Gulag

Publicerat av Tony Harkén torsdag, 06 december 2018.

China is accused of incarcerating hundreds of thousands of Muslims in detention camps that are rising from the desert sands in Xinjiang.

A forensic analysis of satellite images of 39 of these facilities shows they are expanding rapidly.

Uighurs have bristled at what they say are harsh restrictions on their culture and religion.

They have faced periodic crackdowns, which intensified after riots in the regional capital in Urumqi in 2009 killed nearly 200 people.

Bombings in Xinjiang and attacks allegedly carried out by Uighur separatists, including a mass stabbing in the city of Kunming in China’s southwest in 2014 that killed 31 people, led to further restrictions.
