    Uighurs are treated “worse than dogs” in Chinese camps in Xinjiang, a new “people’s tribunal” into their treatment has heard.

    The independent tribunal, which is being held in London, has been set up to assess whether China’s alleged human rights abuses against Uighur people constitute genocide.

    It does not have the backing of the UK government and has no powers to sanction China, but organisers hope the evidence heard will compel the international community to take action.
