A video has been released after reports emerged of Uighur singer Abdurehim Heyit’s death in a Chinese internment camp. It purports to show Heyit alive, but in prison. Prisons have sprung up across north-west China, housing more than one million Muslims in what China has called “re-education camps.” The reported death of Heyit has now prompted the first rebuke from a Muslim-majority nation. Turkey called the “re-introduction of interment camps in the 21st century – a great shame for humanity” and asked China to “close the internment camps.”
