Recent from The Telegraph:
The Telegraph published this video item, entitled “Inside Xinjiang – The cultural erasure of the Uyghurs” – below is their description.
EXCLUSIVE – The Xinjiang region is a landlocked, sandy corner in northwest China where for centuries a history and culture has flourished among people living on the edge of the vast Taklamakan Desert.
But Chinese authorities have locked up more than a million people in fortified detention centres in the area.
The Telegraph criss-crossed Xinjiang over nine days to investigate China’s crackdown on the Uyghurs.
In this video series, we examine what’s happening now on the ground in Xinjiang.
Part 1 focuses on the culture erasure of the Uyghurs: how Beijing has begun erasing the rich cultural and religious heritage in Xinjiang to force the group to become more ‘Chinese’.

In This Story: Xinjiang
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.
