Human Rights Watch Warns of 'Massive Crackdown' on China's Muslims

She acknowledged the State Department had received a letter from a bipartisan group of USA lawmakers last month asking Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to impose sanctions on a number of Chinese officials accused of involvement in the internment of the Muslim minority.

"There are credible reports out there that many, many thousands have been detained in detention centers since April 2017, and the numbers are fairly significant from what we can tell so far", Nauert said.

China has defended their crackdown in the region, saying that Islamist militants are plotting attacks in Xinjiang and are considered a serious threat.

China's Foreign Ministry urged United Nations human rights chief Michelle Bachelet to respect the country's sovereignty after she urged it to allow monitors into the restive far western region of Xinjiang and expressed concern about the situation there.

Chinese officials claim the camps are for "vocational education and employment training centers", or are for "criminals involved in minor offenses", according to Human Rights Watch.

Cuomo holds 41-point lead over Nixon in NY
He's offering to pay for the Nixon campaign to send out its own mailer but it's unclear whether there's time before election day. The mailer says Nixon "won't stand strong" for Jewish residents and has been silent on rising anti-Semitism.

The group said in a report that Xinjiang's Muslim population of about 13 million has been subjected to "forced political indoctrination, collective punishment, restrictions on movement and communications, heightened religious restrictions, and mass surveillance in violation of worldwide human rights law".

It is estimated that in the area, one million are now detained in re-education camps where they are forced to learn Mandarin and sing the praises of the Chinese Communist Party.

"If they resist, or officials deem they have failed their lessons, they are punished".

A law student at the University of British Columbia named Shawn Zhang has been posting satellite photos online that he says show a network of re-education camps across Xinjiang, along with information about their location.

Punishments for refusing to follow instructions in the camp could mean being denied food, being forced to stand for 24 hours or even solitary confinement, it said.

New United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights Michelle Bachelet attends the Human Rights Council at the United Nations in Geneva, Switzerland, September 10, 2018.

Bachelet called for a thorough investigation of the deaths of Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar and said that a pattern of abuses continues in the border region of Myanmar to this day.

"In light of these reports, we would request the Government to permit access for the (UN) to all regions of China, and trust we will embark on discussion of these issues", she said.

This would be one of the first times the administration would take action against China economically for mistreating Chinese Muslims.

Hundreds of thousands have reportedly been detained in the northwest region of Xinjiang, where they're expected to denounce Islam and learn about Chinese culture.
