DW News published this video item, entitled “Uighurs in China: Eyewitness reports surveillance, torture and rape in Xinjiang’s re-education camps” – below is their description.
In an eye-witness account of the horrors of China’s re-education camps, Sayragul Sauytbay, an ethnic Kazakh woman, shares her story how she was imprisoned like other Muslim minorities in camps, China calls “vocational training centers”. Her crime – being a Muslim minority in China’s north-west. The story of these camps in China’s Xinjiang province has become clearer over the course of the last years. Set-up ostensibly, according to the Chinese government, to offer voluntary education and training, they house at least a million Uighur, Kazakh and other ethnic Muslim minorities. All, being ‘de-radicalised’ as part of China’s measures to counter terrorism.DW 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.
