UN report denounces "serious human rights violations" in Xinjiang

For years, the communist leadership in Beijing has been accused of systematically suppressing the Uyghur population and other Muslim minorities in the Xinjiang region. Human rights activists have been frustrated by the report's delay - Bachelet had said almost a year ago that her office was in the process of finalizing the report. Last week she spoke of "enormous pressure" from all sides on the occasion of the announced publication of the document.

China had resisted publication of the human rights report. A spokesman for China's foreign ministry on Wednesday called the report a "farce orchestrated by the United States and a small number of Western powers." China also regularly denies allegations of human rights violations in Xinjiang.
