More here - or maybe just the same by different journalists - but I read all the articles in The Guardian today and was confirmed in my disgust.

The Chinese leadership and major corporations really need to be sanctioned and banned from every other country until this stops. They won’t be, of course and one day the Uighers will be as destroyed as the Tibetans. Probably worse, seeing as it is their being Muslim that offends Beijing even more than anything.
