High-ranking Chinese analyst Victor Gao defends the detention of an estimated 1 million Uighurs in the Chinese province of Xinjiang on DW's Conflict Zone, by saying China is dealing with extremism and separatism.
Human Rights Watch has said that China is taking measures that will weaken systems protecting human rights around the world. The NGO's annual review was launched in New York after its director was barred from Hong Kong.
A confidential document has indicated that the German government is aware of human rights violations in China's Xinjiang region, and warns that Uighurs deported back to China may disappear "indefinitely."
Many Hong Kongers are watching the scale of China's crackdown in Xinjiang with fear. A protest in support of the Uighurs was violently put down by riot police.
