U.N. Chief Raises Issue of Xinjiang's Uighurs During China Visit

Apr 30, 2019

United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres raised the plight of Muslims in China’s Xinjiang region during a visit to Beijing last week, a U.N. spokesman said on Monday.

China has faced growing international condemnation for what it calls re-education and training centers in the remote western region. Activists say they are mass detention camps holding more than 1 million ethnic Uighurs and other Muslims.

China, which has shown diplomats its re-education centers, has told them that “absurd preachings” from Islamist extremists there had turned some people into “murderous devils.”
