22 envoys condemn China’s treatment of Uighurs in Xinjiang

Geneva: More than 20 countries have written to top United Nations human rights officials condemning China’s treatment of Uighur and other minorities in the western Xinjiang region, in a letter released on Wednesday.
UN ambassadors from 22 states -- including Australia, Britain, Canada, France, Germany and Japan -- co-signed the text sent to the Human Rights Council president, Coly Seck, and the High Commissioner for Human Rights, Michelle Bachelet.
