The United Nations has revealed it has received reports that China is holding over a million ethnic Uighurs and other Muslim minorities in what resembles a massive internment camp in the western Xinjiang autonomous region. According to the group China Human Rights Defenders more than 20 percent of all arrests in China last year occurred in Xinjiang even though the region makes up less than 2 percent of China’s population. China has rejected the internment camp reports, but an editorial in a state-backed newspaper says that China’s actions in Xinjiang have helped prevent the region from becoming “China’s Syria” or “China’s Libya.”
