Uighurs: Western countries sanction China over rights abuses

Those hit with sanctions include Chen Mingguo, the director of the Xinjiang Public Security Bureau, who the EU said was responsible for “serious human rights violations”; senior Chinese officials Wang Mingshan and Wang Junzheng; and the former head of China’s Xinjiang region, Zhu Hailun. One entity, the Xinjiang Production and Construction Corps Public Security Bureau, was also sanctioned.
