Rape camps: The BBC publishes horrendous evidence yet of what happens in Xinjiang's camps.

Breaking: the BBC publishes some of the most horrendous evidence yet of what happens in Xinjiang's camps. Endemic rape, brutal sexual torture of women, electric batons inserted into vaginas, Uyghur female detainees provided to Han men for a fee.




'Their goal is to destroy everyone': Uighur camp detainees allege systematic rape

Women in China's "re-education" camps for Uighurs have been systematically raped, sexually abused, and tortured, according to detailed new accounts obtained by the BBC. You may find some of the details in this story distressing.

The BBC also interviewed a Kazakh woman from Xinjiang who was detained for 18 months in the camp system, who said she was forced to strip Uighur women naked and handcuff them, before leaving them alone with Chinese men. Afterwards, she cleaned the rooms, she said.

"My job was to remove their clothes above the waist and handcuff them so they cannot move," said Gulzira Auelkhan, crossing her wrists behind her head to demonstrate. "Then I would leave the women in the room and a man would enter - some Chinese man from outside or policeman. I sat silently next to the door, and when the man left the room I took the woman for a shower."

The Chinese men "would pay money to have their pick of the prettiest young inmates", she said.

Some former detainees of the camps have described being forced to assist guards or face punishment. Auelkhan said she was powerless to resist or intervene.

Asked if there was a system of organised rape, she said: "Yes, rape."

"They forced me to go into that room," she said. "They forced me to take off those women's clothes and to restrain their hands and leave the room."

4. And Tuesday China blocked UN Security Council

condemnation of Myanmar coup

Shortly after the coup I heard an analyst explain that China doesn't object to the Myanmar military's criminal treatment of the Rohingya and the Myanmar military doesn't object to China's criminal treatment of the Uyghurs. "Internal issues" is the excuse they use.

against the Chinese people, one would think the Chinese would know better.

I guess not.
