  • BBC News published this video item, entitled “New evidence of Uyghur children separated from their families in China – BBC News” – below is their description.

    The BBC has been investigating the plight of thousands of children believed to have been separated from their parents as a result of China’s treatment of its minority muslim Uyghur population.

    The UK and the US have accused China of violating human rights as reports emerged of Uyghurs being forced into internment camps and subjected to forced labour and of women being sterilised.

    The Chinese government has denied that Uyghur families are being deliberately divided.

    For the past two years the BBC has made repeated requests to help track down the missing children, but the Chinese authorities have failed to respond.

    Sophie Raworth presents BBC News at Ten reporting by China correspondent Jon Sudworth in Taiwan.

    In This Story: Taiwan

    Taiwan, officially the Republic of China, is a country in East Asia. Neighbouring countries include the People’s Republic of China to the northwest, Japan to the northeast, and the Philippines to the south.

    The political status of Taiwan is complicated. The Republic of China (ROC) is no longer a member of the UN, having been replaced by the People’s Republic of China (PRC) in 1971. Taiwan is claimed by the PRC, which refuses diplomatic relations with countries that recognise the ROC. Taiwan maintains official diplomatic relations with 14 out of 193 UN member states and the Holy See.
