Xinjiang: US to block some exports citing China's human rights abuses

The US will block some exports from China's Xinjiang region, over alleged human rights abuses against the mostly Muslim Uighur minority.

It says "forced labour" was used to make the products, including at a "vocational" centre it called a "concentration camp".

The export ban includes garments, cotton, computer parts and hair products from five entities in Xinjiang as well as nearby Anhui province, BBC reported.

The move is the latest by the Trump administration to put pressure on China over the situation in Xinjiang, BBC reported.
