U.S. politicians are sending one of their strongest ever warnings to China over the crackdown on Uighur people.
More than a million of the Muslim ethnic minority have been imprisoned in what leaders describe as ‘vocational training’ camps.
The government says inmates are there voluntarily to renounce so-called extremist thoughts.
However, rights groups label the ‘re-education camps’ in Xinjiang Province as prisons, saying they’re part of a systematic campaign to strip the Muslims of their identity and culture.
China is condemning a U.S. bill demanding the closure of the camps, and sanctions against Communist party leaders.
Will this measure change anything for the Uighurs?
