posted on November 27, 2018

The Associated Press’s Maria Danilova reports, “A member of the Uighur minority on Monday detailed torture and abuse she says she experienced in one of the internment camps where the Chinese government has detained hundreds of thousands of religious minorities.” Mihrigul Tursun, who was detained in China at least three times beginning in 2015, said, “I thought that I would rather die than go through this torture and begged them to kill me.” Danilova adds, “Tursun said she and other inmates were forced to take unknown medication, including pills that made them faint and a white liquid that caused bleeding in some women and loss of menstruation in others.”
