UK imposes sanctions on Chinese officials over Uighur abuses


The Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab has announced sanctions against four senior Chinese officials accused of being behind abuses of  Uighur Muslims in Xinjiang,  calling it one of the “worst human rights crises of our time”.

Mr Raab said there was clear evidence of a “highly disturbing programme of repression” and the international community could not simply look the other way.
