Uyghurs bussed across China for forced labour in factories – new footage

International Editor

The US State Department announced new sanctions today on some employees of Chinese tech companies, including Huawei, for their involvement in human rights abuses in the Xinjiang region; home to the country’s persecuted Uyghur community.

This comes as new footage has emerged showing Uyghur people being bussed out of their region to work as forced labour in factories across the country, a new phase in China’s campaign to forcibly assimilate its Muslim minority.
