A Uyghur man is serving an 11-year prison sentence for “inciting
separatism”, allegedly for translating Chinese-language news related to
Kashgar City, in a newly revealed case reported by Uyghurbiz.net.

The Uyghur people, whose traditional lands are in the north-west of the
Chinese state, have been denied national rights and suffer severe
repression.
