China: China: “Where are they?” Time for answers about mass detentions in the Xinjiang Uighur Autonomous Region

Source: Amnesty International Country: China
INTRODUCTION Located in China’s far northwest, the Xinjiang Uighur Autonomous Region (XUAR) is a huge, sparsely populated area encompassing vast semi-desert steppes in the north and severe desert basins ringed by historic oasis towns in the south. Roughly three times the size of France, the area covered by the XUAR was renowned over centuries for the ancient Silk Road and its flourishing conduit of trade and culture between China and the rest of the world.
