CHINA: “LIKE WE WERE ENEMIES IN A WAR”: CHINA’S MASS INTERNMENT, TORTURE, AND PERSECUTION OF MUSLIMS IN XINJIANG
10 June 2021, Index number: ASA 17/4137/2021
Since 2017, the government of China has carried out massive and systematic abuses against Muslims living in the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region (Xinjiang). The human suffering has been immense. On 10 June Amnesty published a report based on new first-hand testimonies gathered from former detainees of the internment camps and other people who were present in Xinjiang after 2017, as well as from an analysis of satellite imagery and data. The evidence Amnesty International has gathered provides a factual basis for the conclusion that the Chinese government has committed at least the following crimes against humanity: imprisonment, torture, and persecution.
