DW News published this video item, entitled “‘Xinjiang Police Files’ show systemic abuse of Uyghurs in China | DW News” – below is their description.

More evidence emerged of China’s brutal crackdown on its predominantly Muslim Uyghur minority. A cache of documents dubbed “The Xinjiang Police Files” was leaked to international media, including photographs inside Xinjiang’s mass incarceration facilities. It’s a rare look behind the walls of a so-called re-education camp in the northwestern Chinese province. The photos show police using physical force against prisoners in handcuffs and chains. The leak was published by a consortium of investigative journalists, including from the BBC and Germany’s Der Spiegel and ARD. The publication coincides with the arrival in China of the UN Human Rights Commissioner Michelle Bachelet.
