Uighurs demand action against China ahead of G7 meeting - BBC News

4 monate vor


Exiled members of China’s minority Uighur community have arrived in the UK, ahead of a G7 meeting of world leaders, to call for action against China. One of the issues on G7 agenda is their relationship with China, and concerns about Beijing's alleged persecution of the country's Uighur population. The Uighurs are a 12 million strong ethnic grouping who are mostly Muslim, and who live mainly in the Xinjiang province of North West China.  The US is among several countries to have accused China of committing genocide.  China denies these accusations and says it is combatting separatism and Islamist militancy in the region.
