China Has Locked up Over 300 Uyghur Intellectuals in Detention Camps: Report

The Chinese regime has detained hundreds of Uyghur and other Turkic Muslim intellectual and cultural elites in its sprawling network of detention camps in China's northwestern Xinjiang region, a report has found.

A report titled "The Disappearance of Uyghur Intellectual and Cultural Elites: A New Form of Eliticide" published on December 8 by the Uyghur Human Rights Project, a human rights advocacy group based in Washington D.C, found at least 312 intellectual and cultural elites were currently being held in some form of detention in the region. These include scholars, professors, poets, musicians, doctors and writers.

In total, it is estimated that upwards of 1 million Uyghurs and other ethnic minorities are being detained in internment camps in China.
