Sky News published this video item, entitled “China: Uighurs ‘treated worse than dogs’ in Xinjiang camps, ‘people’s tribunal’ hears” – below is their description.
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.Sky News YouTube Channel

Xinjiang, an autonomous territory in northwest China, is a vast region of deserts and mountains. It’s home to many ethnic minority groups, including the Turkic Uyghur people. The ancient Silk Road trade route linking China and the Middle East passed through Xinjiang, a legacy that can be seen in the traditional open-air bazaars of its oasis cities, Hotan and Kashgar.
